Yes, due to surface tension.

It's not a 'walk' persay, but more like a hobble. But I guess, yeah, they can walk.

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in water then a male fertilizes them. This is why areas with not running water tend to have more mosquitoes.

No. As a matter of fact, polar bears cannot even walk on water. They can walk on ice, but that is technically not water. The animals that walk on water are water striders, Jesus lizards (corytophanid lizards of the genus Basiliscus), and other small insects such as mosquitoes and small flies that have mastered the technique of landing on water without breaking the surface tension of the water.

Yes, mosquitoes thrive everywhere there are pools of water
