No, you can direct connect you machine to the Time Capsule. I use wireless backup though, and it's great!

As far as I know, It can be wired and/or wireless. You have an option to configure this in Time Machine Preferences on your Mac. I think if you have it wired, it will automatically sync through the Ethernet cable.

No. You can to it with cable. But wireless is the soul of this program. First backup must be by cable.

No, you can do backups using Ethernet. Also, it is recommended to do the first backup using Ethernet because it is normally very big.

I also use wired back up, because it is faster, more efficient, and less hassle. However if you're Time Capsules cannot be away from your computer wireless is still a good option because it runs in the background.

Direct connect via ethernet is much faster than wireless.

If you had your computer plugged directly into the time capsule than it would be direct and not wireless.
