ANSWER Paying your debts in a timely manner doesn't give your credit score best results !!!! Crazy isn't it ! This is called your balance-to-limit-ratio and counts for 30% of your credit score. In order to get best result you have to keep your balances at least 70% away from your limits.
It shouldn't ! Paying off your balance early shows you're in good control of your finances - and can budget your bills based on your disposable income !
If you are charging and paying it off each month then it helps. If you never use the card then it really doesn't do much either way.

Your credit report, credit rating and credit scores do not reflect any difference in paying the full amount on a credit card account or paying the minimum amount.

Most likely it will. The credit agencies may not know whether you cancelled your account, or if it was taken away from you by the credit card company. If you are concerned about your credit score, then having 2 to 3 credit cards will generally raise your score, as it demonstrates that each credit card company believes you to be capable of paying their credit card bills. Only use those credit cards enough times a year that they will not be canceled due to non-use.

They could further hurt you credit score. You will pay a higher interest rate which makes paying the payment that much harder which puts your credit even lower.
Actually, it does. It uses the available credit you have so when that goes down the credit score does too.
Absolutely. It won't be hurt as badly as not paying, but your credit report usually shows a status that reads "pays as agreed." If you're paying less than the minimum amount due each month, you're not paying as agreed and your credit can get dinged.
