Hello and welcome!

Let's have a look if I can help you out just a bit.

1) you still can receive OTA when bootloader is unlocked. As long as you have a stock recovery installed.

2) sorry can't tell. Maybe just ask in the Viper developer thread. As I don't have a dual SIM version, I'm cannot check it myself.

3) new firmware can just be installed if it comes with an OTA, but not by flashing it, as long as you are not S-Off.

Hope it helps. Hit "Thanks" if it does.
