  • 1- Of course it is legal. 

    2-A credit card pre-authorization is much like any other charge to a credit card, except instead of actually debiting funds from the cardholder you just put a temporary "hold" on the funds that lasts for X days. At a technical level, the actual duration of the hold depends on the merchant classification code (MCC code); payment network; issuer bank policy's; acquirer bank policy's.

    3- Depent on acquirer bank policy; payment network; MCC; company.
