A factory reset deletes all the links to the information in your phones on board storage it does not actually delete the data. All your data is still there and recoverable. If that is good enough for you it is ok. What I would do is reset the phone down load movies until the storage is full to over write your data and reset the phone again. There are apps that will rewrite information on your storage to over write the information on your drive too. Ideally you should do it a few time to rid as much of your data as possible.

No. If your photos has been stored on your Google account, they've been there while you don't delete them from your account. When you factory reset your phone, it's deleted only what's on your phone and not what's on your account.

This may be a WiFi connection problem or this is on your device. Verify if this problem is on any other device. If other divice is OK, try to reinstall the Stock ROM on your tab.
