SQL server2005 is too old.

Try 2012 or 2014 versions instead.

no idea; not a developer so not sure for certain
VS wouldn't know about new features in later versions of SQL
newer versions of VS would work with older SQL though

Better to use Visual studio 2008 or higher version, against SQL 2012 or 2014.
