1. Audio devices are on the radar but there's no support yet. For the 
moment you'll have to manually modify the guest config.

2. If you're using Xen, it will attempt to automatically set up a bridge 
attached to a physical NIC, but this isn't terribly reliable. If you 
manually set up a bridge on a machine, virt-manager will detect it and 
allow you to connect a guest to it. Virt-manager will not however set up 
a bridge for you... not really its line of work, per se.

3. Not sure I understand, can you be more specific?

Take care,
