No. The metre gauge (1.000 mm) and the large/irish gauge (1.600 mm) are more commons in Brazil.

Large gauge (1.600 mm)

Standard gauge (1.435 mm)

All new lines of São Paulo will have standard gauge, except line 13.

Yes, however it will have only one connection at Vila Prudente Station with Line 2 and perhaps a paid transfer to EMTU's bus lines at São Mateus Station.

This picture is really interesting. This is a Line 9 train rolling in Line 8, towards Barra Funda, it was a special express trip from Line 9 station Villa Lobos, in order to bring people from the inauguration of Villa Lobos, Ceasa and Cidade Universitária stations back to Barra Funda, where they would take Line 3 to Tatuapé, where the deliver of the first new trains of CPTM 7000 Series and Metro H Fleet would happen.
