The best parental control out there is the parent, don't use software to do the job of a parent, be a parent and play with the child and make sure they are doing what they are meant to be doing, not leave them to do whatever and hope a piece of software will be a parent for you

1. Some servers have plugins added that prevent griefing other peoples areas (A popular one is called griefprevention) - so it's best to find a SMP that has this type of plugin installed (Some servers don't since they allow griefing - like Pvp or factions servers)
With this type of plugin the first time you place a chest down - a small (usually 9x9 area) is autoclaimed which you - & only you - can build on & no-one (and I mean NO-ONE) else can do anything on that claimed area without you adding them (or trusting them) with the necessary permissions. This means nothing can be destroyed or stolen unless YOU allowed players access to the protected area
Servers have their own ways of allowing player to buy/earn extra claim blocks which then can be used to expand your current claim, allowing you to build bigger builds.
2. Starting up a normal Minecraft game - you should see on the main screen 'Singleplayer' and 'Multiplayer' options.
Clicking the 'Multiplayer' would bring up a list of servers IF you added them to your personal list (otherwise it will be empty)
You would need to click the [Add server] button then type in the required details into the boxes.
The first box is a general purpose name that you can type whatever you like (e.g it might be the name of the server like 'mcdaily' or the type of server like 'PvP')
The 2nd box is the actual server address. If you vist Servers lists like this one - each type of server has something like 'mc.hypixel.net' underneath the banner ad.. this is what you would need to type in
Once details are entered the [Done] button will highlight - click that & now the server list shows the server you just added
Hover your mouse over the server icon & click the big arrow to join that server.
Note that SOME servers are 'whitelisted' meaning that only certain players can join that server (eg 'hermitcraft' has a white list that only certain youtube players can join)
3. Most Servers are free to join.
There are terms & conditions set up by Mojang about server payments that restrict what servers are allowed to ask for in payments. However some servers do ask for cash/donations so that they can get a little bit of extra cash to pay the hosting provider of the server & keep the server running, but usually this is voluntory (I'm sure other player can confirm/deny this)
4. This is hard to answer IMHO. It really depends on the type of Server you join
hen I first started on a Multiplayer server - which was a 'survival one - I started up playing just like single player worlds but eventually started chatting to other players, which progressed to trading between each other, helping with larger builds.. gathering resources for each other - stuff like that
Other Multiplayer servers may have MMO or quests.. so you baisically play like normal survival, but there could be harder challenges to complete, or perhaps more mini-bosses to fight against.. there may even be 'skill trees' that you need to gains experience to unlock certain skills to survive
Some servers are 'minigame' servers - like hypixel - that have a selection of minigames players can play (Bed wars/survival games/ hide&seek are a couple) and don't actually have survival worlds at all - so it's generally a place you & your friends could get together to play against one-another (or as a team in some games) for some friendly rivary
Then there's 'creative' servers.. which allows players normal 'creative' mode to build whatever they like without having to go out gathering resources
so it's hard to say what players do on mulitplayer since there's so many variants of gameplay available
I'm sure any other players here can give more information about what they do on servers - & even agree/disagree to what I've currently said, but I hope what I've said may give you a bit more info about Multiplayer servers
