No. Not if they are panic attacks. It may be difficult to tell a heart attack from a panic attack as the symptoms may be similar.

If you have had past trauma, get therapy for that.
No, but feels like it. Panic attacks are not life threatening even if they feel like they are. They are described by most like a "heart attack" and often seen at the er but they can be very frightening. They are treated with anxiolytics and antidepressants.

Probably not. Panic attacks trigger the autonomic nervous system to increase heart rate and blood pressure. You may interpret the increased heart rate as something terrible happening which can further raise heart rate and start a vicious circle. Rarely do panic attacks cause permanent damage to your heart, but you should receive psychotherapy to stop the attacks.
They do not. Panic attacks are a psychic or subjective phenomenon and do not affect your heart structurally.
