The goal keeper is a player and can receive a pass like any other player. There are limits on when the goal keeper may use their hands when passed with the feet or thrown in to them from a team-mate.

What is the rule about passing back to the goalkeeper?

There is no law about passing a ball backwards to the goal keeper. Direction is completely unimportant. If a player makes a pass with the foot to their own goal keeper, in any direction, then the goal keeper may not touch the ball with their hands. The consequence is an indirect free kick restart for the opponents where the goal keeper picked it up. A deflection would not be considered such a pass. It would have to be a deliberate play by the defender.

This depends on the referee's determination of the passer's intent. If the player was deliberately passing the ball to the keeper, then the keeper may not handle the ball without penalty (though of course saving it with the feet or another part of the body is perfectly legal).

What happens when a player from his own team passes the ball back to his own goalie and the goalie picks it up in the box?

If the pass was kicked with the foot, then play will be restarted with an indirect free kick for the opponents at the location the goal keeper touched it with their hands. This would be somewhere within the penalty area, of course. If not passed with the feet, then the goal keeper may take possession with their hands. Trying to circumvent this law with trickery is misconduct. E.g. Using the feet to pop the ball up in order to head it to the goal keeper.
