Do I need to download and install firmware sequentially from the version I am using now to the latest version?
I mean lets say I am on version1, then version 2 has big updates, latest version is version3.
If I skip ver2 and straight to update to ver3, does it mean that I will miss out on new features introduced in ver2?

Depending on method you are using to update.
In case of OTA updates, you won't have choice and needs to go for all updates you receive subsequently.
In case of Odin updates, you can straightway flash latest version irrespective of your current version.

There are dedicated threads in this forum section tho you may struggle to go to it if you already updated to this November release, I guess we will see 12 for next months release.
Assuming that the beta program will follow the same trend as the previous one, me too imagine that the stable version will be released within the first week of December or earlier (precisely in conjunction with the usual release of monthly security patches).

If I flash manually via Odin, does it mean I won't ever get OTA again?
I am on AUHB 1 Aug security patch, XSA / Australia, which I manually flashed via Odin several months back.
Never received OTA afterwards..

How is Nov update btw?
