1. yes and NO. Yes at work because shared. no for personal.

2. Yes and No.

3. Keepass.

4. someone else likes it.

I personally use a three stage password depending upon the site.
a.I have two passwords that are throw away completely. they are used in combination with a fakeish email and I don't care if people hack them. there are no credit cards or any hoenest real information tied to them. I never use my real birthday adddress etc. unless I absolutely have too. IE work forms. IRS etc...

b. I have a password formula not unlike xkcd mentioned above. But enough different that I feel like a computer couldn't hack it easily and I can easily remember the password. I often record hints on what changed on these passwords in a text file on a local drive that is slightly encrypted. These are for sites like amazon, or other purchasing sites that have my credit card information.

c. One password to rule them all. I have one master password which might change slightly overtime. This is only for banking(wife only knows it) and a second one for secure transfers to my wife and children. They know the password and it is not easy to remember but we seem to do ok with just this one. It is written down only on a piece of paper in an envelop just in case.

That is my system. It works for me.
To err is human to really mess up you need a computer
