No, it's fine. They have to be raised, otherwise there would be fret buzz. It's called action. Adjust it how you like.

Its normalish, depending on how much they raise by.
I find squiers have it raised a lot by default so that theres no fret buzz in the shop.

Do one thing first. Hold down the string at the 1st and last fret on any string. Check the distance between the string and the fretboard at the 7th fret. If its more than 4mm or so, get the truss rod setup.

Otherwise, get some allen keys and lower the saddles at the bridge for each strng till they fret buzz then back-off a bit till they no longer buzz but are still low

That's all a matter of preference. My mate's Les Paul has the action set almost as high as possible, where I prefer to keep mine low.

Find what works for you.

Yah, a little bow is good. In the industry they call it "relief," and if you take it to a reputable shop they actually check to make sure you neck does exactly that.

Your good, bro.
