Hello, The rule is that you are not allowed to deliberatly knock over hurdles. If you would through them over with your hands for example you'd be disqualified. However if you just run over them and you happen to knock them all over then it's up to the officials to decide if you knocked them down on purpose. But really, you can knock them all over and it's okay because I don't think anyone gets disqualified for this nowadays. However I advise you to run over them and not hit them because it is much faster.

As many as they want. There's no penalty but it slows you down.

Because the hurdles for men are set at different distances from the starting line than for women.

Additionally, elite men's stride length would not allow them to hurdle at the distance that womens hurdles are set at; it's simply too short.
