1. Yes...well, sort of. Adding more fermentables without sulfite/sorbate or the yeast being over their max tolerance, you'll restart more fermentation. Be aware of that.
2. Depends. Is it DONE? If you sulfite/sorbate, you'll fairly effectively (although nothing is 100%) stop the ferment at that point. If it's still sweet, now is NOT the time to add things to stop or slow the ferment.
3. Hell no! Oxygen up until I think the 1/3 sugar break (maybe it's 1/2 -- look at hightest's FAQ) but no further.
