There are some warnings about creating a BDB repository on a NFS share,
but that's all that I know of. FSFS is a better choice in that instance,
and probably overall(unless you're already intimately familiar with BDB).

Maybe. The libraries are written to allow for concurrent access. The
only concern that comes to mind would be someone accidently deleting the
folder, or fiddling around in there and breaking something.

I'm fairly certain TSVN uses SVN base libraries, so you should be able
to use any normally supported access method.
