In brief: Echo and cath.
From an imaging standpoint, an echocardiogram and cardiac catheterization would give the most definitive answers for a congenital heart defect.
These studies can define the anatomy and function so decisions can be made regarding therapy.

In brief: Depends
It depends on the defect but ekg and echo will pick up almost all.
The specific signs and symptoms depend entirely on what the defect is. Many have no symptoms or symptoms that only develop later in life.
