A Jewish Rabbi is called "Rabbi." You formally address the rabbi with the word "rabbi" plus the person's last name. For example: Rabbi Cohen, Rabbi Boteach, etc.

No, unless you are using it as part of a title like a story called "The Rabbi and the Bear", or in a persons name like Rabbi John Friedman.

If Rabbi is used as an honorific (like Mr. or Dr.) in an context where it would be obvious that such a person is a rabbi, such as a transcript of the Talmud, Rabbi can be abbreviated as R. (in English) or .ר (in Hebrew). However, this only works in a clear context and most often the word "Rabbi" is unabbreviated.
