The answers are mostly "No". R10 states - Anything the Robot affects (good or bad!) or puts completely outside Base stays as is unless the Robot changes it. Nothing is ever repositioned so you can “try again.” #2. I am not sure what penalty is mentioned here, but we don't replace anything that the robot does during the match. #3. The clock doesn't stop. But the team is allowed to rescue the robot and relaunch from Base. The Interruption rule applies.
