It's not rude, but it's awfully inconvenient for you. Make sure you have a car boot to store it in when you want to party/eat/mix/dance or perhaps put it in a hotel room, Nice to have one for the ceremony and the semi-formal parts of the event, but in the way otherwise.

Dead on. I wouldn't dream of it. When we went to my niece's wedding last month, I brought a Canon P&S (And was happy with the results, too. Those things are annoyingly good.). No way would I carry all that SLR lumber around for free. That's the wedding photographer's job and he's getting paid for it.

Don't get in the pro's way. Someone is paying for this and it's just making it difficult for them to get good shots.

And don't tell the pro your camera is better than theirs - being hit by a pro grade camera body will hurt an awful lot.

Depends on whether he takes a big backswing or not...
