Yes, the Bootcamp Assistant (Utilities => Bootcamp Assistant) will allow you to revert back to a single partition at any time.

I have installed Ubuntu on a VM via Parallels and it works - despite the lack of Parallels Tools support in Linux. I would imagine you might encounter some driver issues in Bootcamp.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I would - unless you need 3D support in Ubuntu.

Either way, yes, you can get your space back.
