Yes no limit in express versions either, you are only limited by the resources of the server that the sql server is hosted on i.e. memory, cpu.
Impossible to know without load testing what those limits will be without load testing your applications and will depend on how many connections per application are expected during use.

Yes up to 10GB, be aware the cpu limit for express is 1 cpu and the memory limit is 1gb
