    the construction of a question depends on who are you asking
    몇 살이야? - when asking a kid or a person way younger than you / lower by social status
    몇 살이에요? - children, not so young, but still younger than you
    나이가 어떻게 돼요? - for someone of your age or status or a bit younger/lower
    연세가 어떻게 되세요? - when asking senior person (older or higher)

    be cautious when talking or asking to seniors or strangers ;)

    I can't help you out for most of this question, but yes there is a Korean age. When you are born you are 1 years old (they include the time when you are in your mom even though its 8 months). Then everyone ages up on the same day. the new year. So to find out your age take this year minus the year you were born then add 1. I hope that helped.
