Answers?

1) Scattered around, at least those that have been identified.
2) The center of the galaxy contains an enormous black hole (somewhere in the millions of solar masses - I don't remember exactly) - stuff nearby is falling in (that's how we know it's there), but it is not a threat to the galaxy as a whole.
3) Definite maybe, but there aren't any known black holes near the solar system.
4) Since stuff is falling into black holes all the time, the answer is now and always, but don't worry about this planet.
