In fact, the question is important, but I must note that you could easily find the answer by yourself. Anyway, my 5 for asking. The answer by Sandeep is correct, I suggest you accept if formally (green button).

Read all about what they mean and are for:[^]

Depending on the XML you define it. To your question, defining a URL in XMLNS defines the scema of the xml and gives it a namespace. It does not fetch anything, it's just that one can follow the schema at the given URL. "The namespace URI is not used by the parser to look up information."

Correct, my 5. I also voted 5 for the question (see my comment to it though) and recommended OP to accept this answer formally.
