Re: does google allow campaigns to run without payment in advance
Google has both pre pay and post pay billing methods. If you've opted for manual payments, you'll have to pay before your ads can run (in advance), and if you've opted for automatic payments, you pay after (postpay) your ads run. It is possible to have an outstanding balance in USD (though you are in AU), if you've selected USD currency while setting up the account.
Speaking of emails from Google, you can validate the authenticity by checking the domain name (@google.com) in the email address. I'd suggest - check your account to confirm the currency you've selected and also check if there's any outstanding balance. In case there is, you can make a payment to clear the same.
