Yes, you can have multiple accounts on one system, but yes, you must pay seperately for each one.

Yes, you would. To play ranked matches, both accounts would have to be Gold.

I'd like to know the answer to that myself because I have a guest account (no xbl paid) for split screen but have never tried getting them both online.

LOL, I was typing as the answer was posted twice.

It wont be deleted but you will have to recover it again to be able to use it online. The easiest thing to do is to use a memory card to copy your profile to, that way you dont needto recover it
