Not normally. Doing so would result in a 'turnover' (possession goes to the other team). There is one exception: when a throw is made and another on-pitch player (on either team) touches the disc but does not catch it, the thrower is allowed to reclaim possession as long as the disc has not hit the ground / another out-of-bounds object.

No, if you have the disc in your hand you are not allowed to take a step, you only have a pivot foot. However, if you are in a full sprint and catch the disc, you can keep running while trying to slow down (known as momentum steps).

No, that would be considered a "travel" or a movement while not maintaining a pivot foot. Technically, you are maintaining a planted position, but if you hand-off the disc, then your teammate's body is considered part of yours and therefore is a travel.

Your team keeps possession of the Frisbee by throwing it to each other. If your team allows the Frisbee to touch the ground then it is automatically a turnover to the other team.

What are the rules to ultimate frisbee?

Ultimate Frisbee is a lot like football. There are two teams comprised of an equal number of players. The game is usually played on a football field so each team begins in their designated endzone (the field canbe shortened by determining the end zones as certain yard lines). One tea begins with the frisbee and yells out ULITMATE! before launching it to the other team (a lot like a kick off). Once a player of the other team has the frisbee they are only allowed to pivot on one leg (they're not permitted to take any steps) from here, they must throw the frisbee to another player on the team. This continues until a member of the team catches the frisbee in the end zone in which that team scores a point and the process starts over. However, if the frisbee is dropped it makes it an automatic recovery for the other team and the game continues, the same with an interception. If a frisbee is thrown out of bounds it is taken up by the other team from where it left the playing field. The game is over when a certain team has reached the designated amount of points (voted prior to the beginning of the game) or a team forfeits.
