For tutorials, take a look at the free ones at asp.net/mvc/tutorials/getting-started-with-mvc3-part1-cs including the Music Store. Also, if you want to pay for some screencasts, see tekpub.com MVC Concepts and Real World MVC3. –  David Ruttka Sep 15 '11 at 18:10

  1. Yes, use MVC 3 first. Having Razor is such a boon to productivity, I find.
  2. The Plural Sight video tutorials on the ASP.NET website are very good
  3. Yes, the framework has brilliant integration with jQuery as standard

I highly recommended using Razor, however keep in mind that there are other view engines available too.

Definitive go to MS ASP.NET MVC site, Pluralsight and the MVC team blogs

Yes, it's totally integrated with jQuery

No question about doing Razor -- it really makes development much, much better.

I think the real question at this point is "Should I start on MVC4 or just use MVC3?" Their dev cycle is pretty tight, in many cases you are better off aiming at the version of the framework under development lest you end up needing to upgrade immediately after publishing.
