Cooking vegetables won't "deprive" them of vitamins since they will still have the vitamins after cooking. However, cooking will alter the vitamins' structures (heat denatures things like enzymes and proteins), which can then lower the bioavailability (the availability a nutrient has to be absorbed by the body) of the vitamins once you eat the cooked vegetable. The vitamins and nutrients are still present, but not to the extent they were when the vegetable was raw. To get maximum nutrients and vitamins from vegetables, eating raw or fresh-frozen (vegetables that are frozen at the peak of freshness - all the good stuff is still present) are the best. However, there are some important nutrients that become more bioavailable to the body after the cooking process (such as the antioxidant lycopene found in tomatoes).
No, many vitamins are not affected by the cooking process. However, certain types of cooking, particularly boiling, are known to leech vitamins out of vegetables.

Cook just enough, without over cooking. Many vitamins are lost when food is overcooked. Steam vegetables, which remain crisp, rather than boiling until the vegetables become soft and rather mushy.
Overcooking vegetables will most likely burn them, which will not taste very good. Also, too much heat will dry the vegetables out and make them undesirable to eat to most people. Read any packaging available to see the preferred way of cooking. Over cooking vegetables break down many of the vitamins and other good things in the vegetables, so they lose much of their nutritional value. Boiling them will also leech many of the vitamins and minerals out of the vegetables and leave them in the water.
Cooking tends to destroy vitamins through the heat. However, some foods increase in vitamins through cooking.
Yes excessive cooking does destroy the vitamins.
All the fruits and vegetables contain vitamins. It's just that some fruits or vegetables have more vitamins than others. Fruits have lots of Vitamin C and vegetables have Vitamin A.
Cooking destroys vitamins because the heat from the cooking ruptures the cells of the vitamins and therefore renders the nutrient useless to the body. However, cooking makes certain foods higher in vitamins, but you need to know from the list which ones they would be.
Fruits and vegetables have a lot of vitamins.
