2/ No. It doesn't block updates, and it's completely transparent for the update process, even if said update wants to update default fonts/ss.

3/ Everything's backed up automatically, but nothing is actually ever written on the system partiton anyway (hence why we're invisible for official updates). Disabling the hack restores the system to a vanilla state, even while it's still installed.
Ah, thanks for the info. Cause I heard of instances where ss hacks resulted in error messages during firmware updates, so I was a bit wary. So theoretically these hacks are OTA-safe yes? I suppose those problematic hacks were applied through SSH from the random pieces of codes I see lying around.

And to think I used to think those were safer/easier.
