Don't know the percentages, but left field is more common. Most batters are right handed, and, on averge, a batter is more likely to "pull" the ball when he hits it. (Note: when a batter is said to "hit to the opposite field", that means that a right-handed batter hits to right field or a left-handed batter hits to left field. On the surface, this is not "opposite field" at all. But it's called "opposite field" because it goes against the natural tendency of a right hander to hit to left field and a left-hander to hit to right field.)

No. The outfield is important and a part of the defense in the team. Not everyone is a right side hitter to smack the ball to left field.

Why do right hand batters hit the ball to left field percentage?

Most batters are "pull" hitters. It means that they swing a little earlier than a "neutral" or "push" hitter. The same goes for left-handers as well. They will hit the ball into right field more often. The teams keep a percentage of where batters hit the ball more often and will try to set their fielders according to that percentage. A great example is when Jim Thome is up to bat, you'll notice that the entire outfield shifts extremely far over toward right field. As far as a percentage, you got me. I couldn't even begin to pretend how I would know that answer.
