It varies but there are a couple of different "gages" which are 15,15L,16,16L,17,17L,18,and 19.Remember the higher the number the thinner they are, and the thinner it is more spin Will be generated but it will brake quicker. Also the L after the gage means that it is in between that gage size and the size after it.

This is a personal preference. The tighter the strings are the more control you have, and the looser the strings are the more power you have. Basically, you want somewhere in between, not too tight, but not too loose either.

No this is not true. Having a racquet strung tight does have an overall effect on how the racquet plays, but to say it will make it harder to serve is simply not true. Tighter strings can reduce the power potential of a tennis racquet but if the player has superb technique he/she may need to have the racquet strung tighter in order to maintain control on their serve.
