    No, but many people use it. It is a personal choice, especially in informal and indirect speech. It is not usually omitted after nouns.

    I don't think it is necessary. You may or may not use it.

    Again you can use it or not use it- personal choice. English allows this choice much more than, for example, Spanish, where it cannot be left out.
