Hi,

1. At least 7 billion miles across.

2. Because some dwarf planets of the same size or even bigger were only dwarfs. Also it couldn't sustain other objects hitting it.

3. First the object must orbit the sun. Second the object must have sufficient gravity to keep it round. And third the object must have cleared away other objects in its orbital region.

4. There may be as many as 42 dwarf planets in the galaxy.
