    Note that we don't say "on today", just "today".

    In my opinion, yes. I think starting a message just with someone's name is rather too abrupt.

    Custom will dictate which you choose. "Dear" at the start of a letter in English doesn't have to have the same "endearment" quality that many people read into it. It's simply a salutation with no intimacy necessarily suggested. However, if it is unusual to address a manager in such a way in your own language, then "To" is a good choice and can't be misinterpreted.

    Your 'thanks' in post #8 suggests that you are satisfied with the responses. Threads are usually left open in case others wish to contribute their thoughts.
