Q1: I would install LimeSurvey in a new folder first. You will no longer can use old templates when upgrading. Many of workarounds will no longer work. Depending on what version you choose (2.6Y.Z or 2.6.ZLTS).
You will need some time to adapt to the new version in terms of GUI.

Q2: The database will be changed during a upgrade. So backup first.

Q3: Depends on what database/version is running now. You might need to update PHP too.

Different approaches to upgrade LimeSurvey can be found here (Try a fresh installation first is my recommendation!):
