manuscript formatting: the little stuff

I do know how to format manuscripts, have been doing so for years, but there are niggling little things I've never done before, for the novel-length submission. Answers appreciated!

1. Does there need to be a separate title page? If so, does anything go on it aside from title and author's name? Would I put just the publication name, or real name/pseud, or what? [And does it actually matter?]

2. What about dedication/acknowledgements? Do those get a separate page as well, or do they just go on the title page or the first page? Or do you not submit those at all when you first turn the manuscript in?

3. I use page breaks after each chapter, but no ### until the novel's end. Is this correct? Should I mark the end of every chapter in some other way?
