Your Emacs was not built with debugging symbols.  The "Preliminaries"
section of etc/DEBUG explains how to build with debugging symbols.

Because you didn't start it.  The GDB "run" command starts the
executable.  This is again described in etc/DEBUG.

You can either start GDB from (another session of) Emacs, or start GDB
from the shell prompt.  In both cases, you should then start Emacs
from GDB.

Yes, that's a good beginning.
