no. 95% of your bacteria live in the media in your filter, not your water. but if you're in the middle of cycling you may lose a little. make sure there's an ammonia source in the tank once you fill back up

Agreed with above.

Most people wouldn't do a WC that big unless it's an emergency.

50% weekly should be enough to keep a tank clean.

Nope, the only time you should be doing a 90% is if something is wrong, or you are rescaping. I mostly stick to 25 - 50 percent water changes, occasionally a 75.
