PVC is used in a number of things for example; car dashboards, apple ipods/iphones/shower curtains, window frames, water pipes.
Yes, this is allowed, however the Brass Tee must be DZR certified, which means it has been through a process of dezinctifacation. This prevents the properties from the water a…s well as the galvanised pipe from eating through the Brass fittings. This is a legal requiremtnt in most countries, however, cheap pirate parts are always available in hardware and plumbing stores.
You can join PVC pipes to brass only by mechanical connections, ie a brass fitting with threads on the brass pipe and a PVC fitting with compatible threads on the PVC pipe.
Yes and NO depending on what kind of piping system. for drain connections yes like tub drains or fixture traps but you need access to all slip/compression fittings. and NO you… can not use PVC to brass for like a discharge pipe on a waterheater PRV (pressure relief valve) or any hot water piping system
Yes, as long as there is a mechanical connection , ie threaded. You cannot glue them to each other.
nothing no reaction both are inert towards each other....
It is used on very low budget housing, lawn furnature and toxic plastic bottles

You need 2 mechanical fittings with compatible threads. One is PVC to glue to the PVC and one is brass to solder to the brass. Then they screw together.
No, but that is what the TEE BOX is for.
Yes, you can glue PVC to bras by using an epoxy glue. PVC glue will not stick to brass.
NO, PVC is very sensitive to which glue is used. In Domestic pipe applications you should use Weld-On 711
