    Use passive form and definite article 'the' which sounds better.

    You're using an ellipsis. This sign consists of three dots '...'.

    If you want to use the whole expression as a noun phrase, which can act as the subject or object of a sentence, yes. Then you can also retain the expression " from the beauty of stars"

    Not like that. I normally wish some more experienced and native teacher to guide you, but after it remains unattended to for more than one or two days, I usually take up.
