2. The question is, are you going to feel safe from future Mongol attacks?
Looks like Beijing is pretty well protected.

4. Actually no, and the Great Wall is actually an incorporation of many smaller walls...
that existed before it that were built to keep the many competing kingdoms, before the Ch'in dynasty conquered most of them, from invading each other. Those walls didn't work either, obviously.
