From your description of the problem, I would not conclude that the MB is at fault yet.

Gigabyte does not offer that service. You should contact the place of purchase.

I have never had any reason to deal with them. I just checked the website here.

However your problem is more likely being caused by some software/driver issue.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

That depends on the frequency of the BSOD. Once a year? Absolutely, you pretty much have to expect it. If it happens daily, certainly not.
