2nd) Yes. You are correct in your formula.
3rd) You should also be aware that you can get a +1 to parry from retreating (available once per turn) and/or you can get a +2 to any defense by using 1 FP (see extra effort). I don't have my books with me but they are worth looking up.
Bare in mind that Extra Effort (especially in combat) is an optional rule. I suppose, technically, almost everything is an optional rule but retreating is close to universally used. Extra Effort in combat, IME, is not.
