    not unless you dont feel that much pressure in your pedal. You can add to the resivoir without bleeding.

    if the level in the reservoir is just low, you'll be fine. if there's no fluid in the reservoir, you probably have air in the lines and will need to bleed. You might even need to bench bleed the master cylinder.

    definitly bleed the master cylinder before you put it on anyway, it is a good thing to do "just in case"

    No, if your just adding to raise a low level. Like said before if it has dipped to teh point of being empty than yes.
