Although I can't really give a great answer for 2 and 3, I was taught another method of breaking the line without much of a hassle for mono and braid. If you are snagged just open the bail and get a few wraps around the crank of the reel (around 2-3, nothing major). Get your footing and aim your pole DIRECTLY at the direction of the snag. Slowly pull straight back and the line will break. Saves your hands and is a quick way to get the sad job done. Though 4/10 times I get my gear back with hitchhikers.
