You dont need to worry about it. Macs can read Fat32 just as well as their format, however Windows can only seen Fat32 and cant see Mac's format so I'd leave it Fat 32

Yep just leave it as Windows formatted that way you can still connect to windows and mac

If you format it to mac you lose all of your songs and can only use it on macs
