1) Possibly.
It for sure will if you add it to your network in another room, connected LAN port to LAN port with the E4200 using cat5e cable. Disable the DHCP server on one of the routers, and change the LAN address of one of them to, say, 192.168.1.254 (as long as it's outside the scope of the active DHCP server).

2) No

3) the E4200 has 1 USB 2.0 port; the EA6700 has 1 USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0 port.
The E4200 supported only 802.11a/b/g/n, while the EA6700 supports those plus 802.11ac as well.
