1.How long can I expect my D3 to last. It currently has 130,000 clicks.

A very long time. It's rated to 300,000 clicks, and camera shutters often last well past what they're rated to take. Even if it does blow, it shouldn't cost that much to replace the shutter.

2. I just noticed my firmware is old. I upgraded it. Will I notice a difference with the new 80-400 vr? I was going to send the camera in for service after this weekend because the images just seem to be a little off.

Probably not? What do you mean when you say the images seem a "little off"?

If they're consistently back or front focused, you might want to look into AF fine tuning.

3. What exactly does Nikon do if I send the camera in for cleaning, etc. If I think the focusing is off, will they do anything to correct it?

Maybe if you send the lens in with the camera and say there's a problem (and you're specific about what that problem is), they might try adjusting it. But why not try fine tuning it yourself and seeing if that fixes the problem?
