Varies by offense.
If you committed the same offense twice, yes.
Yes and in most states it is a criminal offense to drive without insurance (even if you are not at fault, you will most likely be charged with this offense). If you are found at fault and are not insured, you are still resonsable for all of the damages and/or bodily injuries.
The term "felony" is used to indicate the seriousness of an offense. A "felony" is a serious offense such as homicide, robbery, kidnapping, etc. A "misdemeanor" offense is a crime of less seriousness and a "summary" offense the least serious, such as a speeding ticket or littering fine. The term doesn't indicate whether it is a federal offense.
Citation for what? Maybe the offense is still under investigation and hasn't been concluded yet.
