1.) Can you do long exposures 1- 30 mins without touching the camera? (worried about movement) Doesnt look like there is a cord option? phone? remote? how do you set up a 20 min shot on a tripod without touching the camera?

I've verified that this works on my NEX-7...

Put the camera in manual mode, set the shutter speed to "Bulb" and set the drive mode to "Remote".  Pressing the shutter release button once on an IR remote will open the shutter.  Pressing it again will close it.  You won't need to touch the camera at all while the shutter is open.
