3) If I am BRCA positive does that mean I will develop cancer later on?

Being BRCA positive does not mean that you will definitely develop cancer. It only puts you at a higher risk and must be treated as a sign of warning.

4) Are BRCA genes found in everyone?

Yes they are. BRCA genes are tumor suppressor genes and they survey our system for abnormalities. One of the reason why cancer develops is because these genes undergo mutations.
