You could line the piece, or you could thread a yarn needle with some of the yarn and run it up through the back of the stitches and the floats. It won't show from the front, but will hold the floats...

Yep, totally normal. If you get hold of the sides of the "seam" once it's done and pull gently in opposite directions, you'll see what I mean about blocking. It really doesn't matter much, though.

I don't see why not. It's going to take a bunch of yarn, of course. You might want to mess with gauge, because if you worked it tight it might be too warm (right now, that doesn't seem possible!)...
