Thank you so much.

You lose the ability to have all of the data in-house, you gain a lot of functionality with the edition change from Exchange 2003 to 2013. A lot of the setup and management is taken away from the in-house system, but you gain a service level agreement and pretty much guaranteed uptime.. There is a lot less maintenance for you to do i.e. worry about disk space

Compared to 2003, you will get A LOT of new features. There are also some features that are not available for on-prem 2013, or will make it there in few months. You will also get seamless integration with the rest of the Microsoft productivity software. Hardware costs are minimized. Overall, you will need less staff and less experience to manage it.

The downside is that you have a bit more limited options, some features are unavailable, others you simply cannot manage as a end user and you have to contact Microsoft.

You can review this article for comparison between on-prem and cloud versions of 2013:

Mail merge is an Office function (Word or Outlook), it doesn't depend on Exchange. You will be able to use it.

If we use Outlook as email client for Gmail, does Mail Merge work with Word?

Also
Do you know the way to sync Office 365's calendar with Gmail's calendar?

Thanks
