    Yes, it is, if you start it with a capital letter and end it with a full stop. Otherwise it is not a sentence.

    Although not as common, yes, it is grammatically correct.
    When it comes to ellipsis, do not use more than three points, or four (when ending a sentence). However, three is also fine.
