  1. Funnily enough, yes!

    Just make sure there's nothing touching anything that can discharge static and you're good to go!
  2. Yes, it will not conduct any electricity (make sure no staples)
  3. Best answer
    Yes and no. You might physically mount your parts in/on a cardboard box, but it will not be sturdy, may trap heat (cardboard is an insulator), and won't be strong. Also, it will offer no EMI protection, in or out, and will not offer good grounding to your components, so you'll need to be especially careful about static.
    If you're just talking about assembly for test purposes before using a case, sure and a a lot of people do things like this.
