Shut it off for everything, acceleration ruins precision

Do what makes you comfortable. However many prefer it off. In the end, it's up to you.

Again, whatever makes you confortable. Usually, there's some correlation between sensitivity and grip style. For instance, high sensitivities fits well fingertip grip. Again, in the end, it's up to your taste.

The numbers alone actually don't say much. The best way to define sensitivity is in terms of (amount of distance travelled in the mousepad) per (360º in-game turn). Here you can see a good explanation.

People commonly refers to sensitivity with "my sensitivity is X cm/360º".

Most of quake pros use accel (rapha, cooller, cypher...)
with accel u can use very low sensitivity for tracking (slow movement) and u can turn fast by wipe ur mouse very fast. I prefer not to use it, because i'm used to it, just find what is comfortable for u.
If u want an advice, spend a week finding ur best sensitivity/accel and then DO NOT change it, even if some days u won't hit a shot. This will make ur brain remember the exact movement in real world in realtionship with the movement in game. start with a mid sens (25 cm/ 360 degrees) and then slightly icrease or degreas it.
I use 23.1 cm/ 360 in quake and 33.6 cm in cs/tf

I don't like using acceleration, but it's up to you. You can do well with either if you get used to them.
