Arthropods have segmented bodies and exoskeletons. Some types of arthropods are crustaceans, insects, and arachnids.
Answer From a few weeks to over thirty years. Some large crustaceans, such as lobsters, are believed to live to over 100 years. If you don't include the larval stage, there are some mayflies that live for only minutes as adults, lasting only long enough to reproduce.

No, spiders as well as other arachnids (like scorpions) and insects have exoskeletons. That means their bodies have hard outer shells, not internal bones.

No, despite the name, you will likely never find one with more than 750 legs, and common ones won't have over 400. Some even have 50 or less. The reason for the discrepancies in numbers here is that they are a group of many species.

Answer Arthropods are invertebrates (animals without a backbone) with jointed legs and a hard exoskeleton (external skeleton). Within the arthropod group are insects (six legs), arachnids (eight legs), crustaceans (variable number of legs) and myriapods (millipedes and centipedes - many legs).
