I will try.

Yes.  There is a 14 day "grace" period after expiry, where the name is
removed from the zonefile but still available in the registry.  

After that, the name can neither be renewed or transferred, as the name is
scheduled for deletion.

I believe so.

I am not sure about this from a registry capability.  ie does the registry
allow a registrar to update the contact details after expiry, but before
deletion.  AusRegistry can probably give a definitive answer to this - I
haven't verified it myself.  It should be possible.
