I've barely eaten in 3 days, will that harm me too bad?

Only thing that will happen VERY SOON is that your body will go into starvation mode and hold onto all the fat it can get, even producing extra, and when you start eating again it will use as much of that as it can to store as fat. That's the rebound effect, and it sure is true. Your body understands starvation, and will do whatever it needs to do to keep collecting the calories just in case the next meal doesn't come...

possibly, but you need to eat something soon, the body needs at least 1000 calories a day in order to continue functioning

It depends how active you are. If you are quite active, it's not good.

Neeeh, not unless you leave it for like 1.5-2wks. Then your stomach acids may start eating away at your stomach lining (which makes stomach ulcers). Other than that, the only thing starving does is slow your metabolism, making it harder to lose weight in the long run.
