There will be some overhead but typically if you can get rid of substantial indexes due to non-usage it is worth it.   I have noticed a very negligible performance overhead due to index monitoring.

Yes but very minor, and worth the effort -- just don't leave it on for the indexes you want to keep.

Yes it is worthy you can gain storage space too by dropping unused indexes

There are special scripts to find unused indexes.

This is of course not 100% secure, because an index can be used very rarely, but it can be used.

Dropping unused indexes you speed up the DML statements - INSERT, DELETE, UPDATE, MERGE and save also disk space.
