thanks for posting.
For points No.1 and 2, I am afraid that the answer is no. Palo Alto Firewalls do not have "bump in the wire" feature that bypass switch to allow flowing of traffic even though there is a hardware failure or device is powered off. To address shortcomings of points No.1 and 2, I would recommend to build an HA pair. Here is the link for documentation HA Overview.
Regarding point No.3, the OS has to come up first, then perform auto-commit, then all data plane interfaces are up. Here is the link for KB.
Regarding point No.4. yes, the behavior is the same for PA-3020 and PA-3250.
