According to Jewish tradition, every person present in the Sinai during the Exodus was a prophet. After that, there have been hundreds of prophets until the end of prophecy. The prophets whose messages were considered important enough to be recorded in the Tanach (Jewish Bible) are:
7) Pinchas the High Priest
8) Elkanah (father of Samuel)
9) Eli the High Priest
13) King David
14) King Solomon
16) Michiyahu ben Yimlah
18) Achiyah of Shiloh
19) Yahu ben Chanani
20) Azariah ben Oded
21) Chaziel son of Metaniah
22) Eliezer of Morisha
35) Uriah from Kiryat Yearim
1) Sarah (wife of Abraham, mother of all Jews)
2) Miriam (sister to Moses)
3) Deborah (the only female among the Judges)
4) Chanah (mother of Samuel)
7) Esther (of Purim fame)
All 3 were Jewish Prophets.
The Tanach (Jewish Bible) includes the Jewish prophets, it does not include the prophets of other religions.
The first book of Prophets in the Jewish Bible is Joshua.
Islam has more or less re-apportioned Jewish and Christian prophets as Islamic prophets and argues that all of these prophets are part of a larger Islamic prophetic tradition. As a result, most of these prophets are highly regarded, but their message in the Qur'anic narrative may be different from that in the Biblical narrative.

Answer 1According to Jewish tradition, God did not set any Hebrew prophets outside Israel.Answer 2The question may be referring to Jonah, who was sent to Nineveh. Other prophets who lived outside of Israel include Ezekiel and Daniel. However, all three of these prophets were Israelites born in the Holy Land.Answer 3Judaism acknowledges the possibility of non-Jewish prophecy, but does not consider it legitimate for Jews to follow them. The most explicit example is Balaam, who is a prophet to the Other Nations. However, Balaam is not considered part of the canon of Jewish prophets (though some of his words are recorded in the Torah [Numbers ch.22-24]).Other non-Jewish prophets mentioned in our tradition are those named in the book of Job.
All of the books of the prophets, including the Torah, are based on being spoken to by God, or receiving Divine inspiration.

There were many Israelite prophets who prophesied privately, not for posterity, whose words were not recorded (Talmud, Megillah 14a). At Sinai we were all prophets. The number of Israelite prophets whose words are in the Hebrew Bible are: 48 prophets and seven prophetesses (ibid).
Jewish tradition was preserved by the Jewish Prophets, Sages, Torah-commentators and codifiers. Jewish tradition is preserved by learning and keeping the Torah.
The prophets faced some opposition from idolaters among their people. But their disciples, and all unsullied Israelites, accepted their words immediately. The people who revered the prophets and learned from them are called "the sons of the prophets" (2 Kings 4:38). According to our tradition, the Jewish canon was sealed around 340 BCE by the greatest Sages of the time, whose group included several prophets. It has been the Jewish Bible ever since.

Muslims and Jews are linked through Prophet Abraham, they are both children of Abraham. They also consider most of the Jewish Prophets to be Islamic Prophets, grafting the history of the Jewish tradition into Islam.
Jewish prophets do not have any distinct characteristics. They are simply people through whom HaShem (The Creator) communicates.
