probably not, if it's live sand that's purchased off of the shelf at the LFS. there is not much chance of anything being live in it after it's been deprived of oxygen for so long.

I said "probably not", not definitely not. Always keep a water change on hand when doing anything major to the tank.
Yes, the water will have to be filled to the top of the partitions.

No. The more skimmate you can get out of the tank the better!
