    Yes, it is correct, mostly?

    The comma before “and” prior to the third item in the list is optional.  (The Oxford comma)  The sentence is correct with or without the comma before “and.”As long as you’re consistent with that in an entire document, you are fine.

    As far as “use,” I would choose “usage” in this case.  The word “usage” is used in the sense of ‘convention’ or ‘practice,’ particularly with grammar.  And because that is the topic here, “usage” would be the most appropriate term.

    Yes, although most of us would phrase it as "wrong word choices."  "Usage" is not any better than "use".
