Does a Java Applet load anything to the user's browser cache? (Possibly take
advantage of for offline use)
Could a Java Applet be used on via a web application, but be configured to
work offline if there is not connection to the server?

Things are cached. Depends how you want it to work. There are settings
to save the cache between 'sesssions' (closing the window). While the browser
is open the classes will be cached even when the 'site' is left.

Yes. Sort of. An applet can only talk to the server that it was launched
from. Some policy/security/certificate can change this but it is usually
not a good idea. You really should look at Web Start (http://www.vamphq.com/).
An applet can run on a local machine with no network connections or webserver.
