I can only help with 2-4.

On-campus housing is much cheaper than off-campus housing if you plan to live alone. It is more expensive, however, than renting and sharing a house with 2-3 other students. The Burton's Pond apartments are part of the overall campus so it's definitely within walking distance of your classes.

If you're comfortable cooking your own meals, it's almost certainly cheaper and healthier. There are also fast food chains on campus, as well as a Chinese specialty store if that interests you.

Your monthly expenses can vary tremendously depending on what you enjoy doing. There are lots of free activities, but there are lots of coffee shops, etc., as well. If you're just getting coffee while out for a walk, it wouldn't cost more than $5/trip. If you're going out to a nightclub, $20 will cover admission and a couple of drinks.
