1) Can I ask if there's an easy way to query in a single SQL statement, a database size, and its file-growth configuration (i.e. size/percentage.

2) How do the filegrowth settings work - for example if you don't set a max-size for a database - how do you know when the next growth increment will occur?

3) If you have configured a maxsize - is there any way to run an SQL query to list the maxsize of the DB and how far off the current size of the DB is to that maxsize?

1) sp_helpdb 'DatabaseName'
2) It only grows when it fills the file. If you have an history of the file growth then you can try to guess when the next grow will occur.
3) You need to calculate by yourself or using any 3rd-tool that will do that for you.

You can also work a little bit on the next code:
SELECT d.name, f.physical_name, f.name, f.type_desc, f.size, f.max_size, f.growth, f.is_percent_growth
FROM sys.master_files f
	INNER JOIN sys.sysdatabases d 
		ON f.database_id=d.dbid
