Some of the energy goes into changing the phase of the liquid to gas.
Yes, as long as the work done equals the heat added there will be no change in internal energy and thereby no change in temperature. When water freezes or when ice melts while removing or adding heat, respectively, the temperature remains constant.
If more work is done on the system than heat added, the internal energy of the system will actually decrease.
The system must be in contact with a heat source that allows heat to flow into the system.
Isothermal processes must be slow to make sure that as heat is transferred, the temperature does not change. Even for isobaric and isochoric processes, the system must be in thermal equilibrium with slow changes of thermodynamic variables.
Typically is greater than because when expansion occurs under constant pressure, it does work on the surroundings. Therefore, heat can go into internal energy and work. Under constant volume, all heat goes into internal energy. In this example, water contracts upon heating, so if we add heat at constant pressure, work is done on the water by surroundings and therefore, is less than .
No, it is always greater than 1.
An adiabatic process has a change in temperature but no heat flow. The isothermal process has no change in temperature but has heat flow.

An adiabatic expansion has less work done and no heat flow, thereby a lower internal energy comparing to an isothermal expansion which has both heat flow and work done. Temperature decreases during adiabatic expansion.
Isothermal has a greater final pressure and does not depend on the type of gas.
