3) If you are using MF, does it make a difference turning off the IS when using a tripod?

Not entirely sure.

Traditional advice is to always turn IS off when using a tripod, although various sources I've read (eg. Ken Rockwell) say most IS systems are smart enough to notice when they are on a tripod and turn off automatically.

I always turn IS off just to be safe.

Same here. My Canon EF 70-300 IS USM is about 15 years old and it does not recognize the tripod. It's just a single switch - Get in the habit of turning if off when on a tripod.
