Does it help to have the leg completely bent so the foot is almost touching your behind like Sharapova for example?

I don't think it's necessary for an effective weight shift unless you find it natural and reactive. I prefer smooth landing as it gives less shock to my ankle and knee.

It varies, but somewhere in the air behind you. The left foot lands first for all good servers these days.

In the air, pointing to the wall behind you.
