You usually should be able to do this without any issues but it depends on your upload/download speed. You are probably looking at approx 120Kbit/s upload for the highest quality of voice data. (G711) Most broadband connections exceed this and if not you can always try a lower speed codec. (G729) with very little loss of quality if any.

If you do a lot of downloading at high speed (maxing out your connection) then you may have problems but this can be resolved by using a router with QoS (Quality of Service) features and setting them up to give priority to VOIP traffic.

Yes you can. Its not like dial-up. The VOIP uses your internet connection to transfer the phone calls. Depending on your home network setup and internet speed is may make surfing the internet slow. If you have high-speed cable or fiber-optic then you should be just fine. .

Yes, VoIP allows web surfing while making and receiving VoIP calls simultaneously. It shares the bandwidth connection with other LAN computers and prioritizes voice.
