There are a lot of webistes for that, maybe you check out those and evaluate if it would work out for you. Some projects there are going to raise way more $$$ than they need others don't even hit the 50$ mark.

It depends on the product, the expected outcome and how popular this might get/be at the end. Also, crowdfnding often works with special offers like meet the devs or get 10 editions instead of one. These offers are staged in different "pay amount options" like 5$ and you get the app, 20$ and you'll get 4 codes for friends, 100$ meet & greet, 500$, Meet & Greet with champagne and a note in the credits.

It really depends on what you are working at and what people would grant you as starting money. So first of all look at the different websites like "Kickstarter" and then evaluate how popular your product might be and how "fast" you could reach your goal of 200k$.
