Acetic acid will dissociate more in water than in methanol. Hence acetic acid is relatively more acidic in water than in methanol.

Methanol is more volatile than water because methanol has a larger vapor pressure than water.

yes. Water is more polar than methanol. That is the reason why we always use methanol to extract many organic compounds. they could be better (more quickly) dissolved in methanol than in water.
