Strength is going to comparable, but will differ from person to person. I would think it would be within 30lbs or so.

I dont think you want to use much leg drive, but I have seen it done both ways. I think you just have to find what works best for you.

I just like to let the back of my tris hit, just before my elbow. I saw a recent video where Mark Bell said he likes to let his rest on the ground for a second before the press.

And yes....I gave you a reply that pretty much said nothing
