#10 No, they won't. They attack if you turn your back, but as pack hunters, a couple will circle around behind you as you are distracted by the one in front.
(This is the technique the velociraptors mimicked in the first Jurassic Park. You know- the "clever girl" scene...)
Even if you chase them off for a minute, as soon as you turn to walk away they'll come creeping up again, only more quietly this time. The best deterrents are fire and loud noises (like a gunshot.)

#10 #13 These are comparable to the statement that every living mushroom picker is an expert. (the rest are dead)

#17 There is no such thing as "simply digging" if you're in an avalanche.

About 55-68% of people that are fully buried in an avalanche succumb, and only about 80% of those that end up by the surface survive.

There are different types of avalanches, but you are likely to be tightly packed in show in an uncomfortable position. You're probably better off conserving your strength, but your chances are still slim.

If you're rescued within 15 minutes you have about a 92% chance of survival. After 35 minutes that chance is reduced to 30%, and after an hour it is 20%. After two hours it's virtually zero.
