I have a K-3 and I started with the recommended settings of PF in-depth review:

Pentax K-3 Review - Recommended Settings - PF Reviews

This is an excellent starting set of settings. Afterwards, experiment and see what suits you best.

Points 1 and 2 depend not only on your personal preferences, but also on the situation. I think you should just experiment with these settings to find out what works for you.
Points 3 and 4 may be a bit different. If you shoot RAW (as I do) you are probably better off switching these functions off as the corrections can be done in post processing, if necessary.
