You can activate in advance but should avoid buying a goodybag as the month starts on date of purchase. You'll need to top up at least £10 for the activation, but for convenience you might choose to top up enough to buy your first goodybag and leave a few pounds of credit over if you need anything not covered by by goodybags.

1) Yes as SIMs are shipped abroad they can be activated outside the UK. You can follow this https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Getting-started/Activating-your-new-SIM/ta-p/3521635 fantastic guide on activating your new SIM. 
2) In order to complete the activation of the SIM you will be required to top up with a £10 minimum top up. 
3) Speeds should be ok however, it depends on the coverage.
