Yes, the last kernel(s) is always there after the update so if you have some problems with the new kernel just reboot and choose the previous kernel which worked. So no risk.

Idem for me. I never had and have no problems with kernel updates in other distros (Debian Testing, Parsix, CentOS, Fedora, Gentoo, Frugalware...), and on several computers, but with Ubuntu (when I used Ubuntu) yes, one or two times, although nothing very serious, so in Mint, we must be careful... Hey, it's Ubuntu!

Yes. On their forums sometimes you can find full of false help, comments or hints and sometimes even false solutions to the problems... Really, sometimes Ubuntu people are just plain "stupid" and misinformed. You should not have this in the Mint forum.
