If you're using clustering then the guidance is 'use a reliable network' - which is a bit fuzzy admittedly. If being on the same vlan decreases the risk of comms disruption (of any sort) then yes, though I can't comment on whether or not that's really the case.

In theory that shouldn't matter, but obviously you'll need to make sure your virtualisation setup is 'just right' - again that's not something I'm an expert with I'm afraid.

Actually it won't make any difference. If any comms breakdown occurs, it can potentially force you to restart nodes. We're planning on releasing some features to help deal with minority islands in the next release (ish).
