Google does provide guidelines for questions like this. Here's a link

https://support.google.com/business/answer/3038177?hl=en

The quick answer, is only list your business once for the location.

An exception to that would be in cases where you might have professionals at that location. For example, a doctors office that has 3 doctors. In that case, you would create 1 listing for the location and 1 listing for each doctor. That would be total of 4 listings, but it's one for the actual physical location and 1 for each professional.

In looking at your website, just create 1 listing, optimize it, and work on getting some good reviews at a consistent and steady pace . If you try to hack it, you'll end up doing more harm than good in the long run.

No, it's an edit submitted to Google. The user might see a notification in the Google My Business dashboard. I would suggest using an anonymous profile if you don't want it attached to your name. Whatever your username is on Google Maps/MapMaker is what they would see IF they knew how to look for it.
