Yes. The controller can drive up to HDTV resolution.

Yes. 24 bit RGB and I think up to 100 MHz pixel clock (must look into the
data sheets).

Not immediately. But it is no problem to use a GTA04 board in a special "module"
configuration where there are two 60 pin board to board connectors instead
of the 39 pin LCD connector. This will allow to use 3 screws to mount a GTA04
board onto a bigger motherboard. That one can carry e.g. a 7in display and
any required level shifters.

Details (pin assignment, connector positions, mounting hole positions etc.)
will be described in the system manual.
