You seem to be learning/starting out, so I really do recommend you check out and look through all the tutorials we've got available here (and google for more caw tutorials) even before you get much farther, just to help stop questions before they come up in some cases. http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=Tutorials:TS3_CAW_Tutorials
I also highly recommend watching Flabaliki's video tutorials
1. Yes, you can. You have to make sure they are EXACTLY at the same height and perfectly even in terms of right/left. I suggest staring by setting two down(or however many you need) and then typing the same positioning xyz numbers into them all, and then carefully moving using the axis lines you see with move tool. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2AN7MPsjqT8 is a video tutorial about it that came up when I Googled for connecting bridges in CAW, hopefully it will be useful.
2.You will know if they are properly routeable when using the View > Show Routing after rebuilding, if the lines are bright green (I think it's green for bridges, may be bright blue like roads/sidewalks) you will know it's routed. If connectors/lines are not bright blue or green in roads, sidewalks, bridges, the routing needs fixing.
3. There is a filter for world layers above them in that box, looks like a search box. Try figuring out what object is stuck (in your case some kind of streetlight) and enter the name of it into that box. It will show you all instances of that object in your world. Right click on the listed items and select "Find in Render Panel" until it finds the one that is stuck under water and has it highlighted, then delete it either with the delete key or by right clicking on it in the object panel again.

Another note, the way I suggested for finding the underwater light is also a good way to select other items that may be so close to another object that it's hard to select them.
I also suggest as you place lots, you rename them from Lot_0, Lot_1 to more descriptive names as you go, so you can find them easily too- and this can even be done I believe for the CAW-placed objects, which also helps find things faster.
So instead of PlankBridge_001 and 002 you can name them "Bridge by beach" "Bridge by city hall", and instead of the Lot_001 Lot_002 in layers can do "101 South Main" "102 South Main" or descriptive like "Community Lot for Store" "Lot to the left of beach" etc.
