    Yes they are, but #1 should end with a question mark and start with a capital letter.

    I agree with your choices, but you could also get away with c in 1 and a in 2.

    Not when used for this meaning.

    'Start' does have another meaning, though: 'to jerk/move suddenly from suprise':

    The loud bang caused the little girl to start.
    The rabbit started from the side of the road.

    In these, you can't replace 'start' with 'begin' and keep the same meaning.

    I would say that "start" is preferable in certain situations.
    I am planning to start a new business.
    I'll start to make breakfast.
    -- Here you can also use "begin," although I would say that "start" is more natural.

    I am going to start my engine so that I can drive to work.
    -- Here "begin" would not work.

    I would imagine that there are situations where "begin" would be preferable. I don't know of any rule, however. Perhaps others do.
