Here the black h-pawn comes in handy.It protects from escaping the black king.

There are a lot of perpetual checks. It's a draw.

Yes.

It's because of Rb1+.

However, before looking at the tablebase, do consider black's options after 6.g8(Q) to understand why black can win. It is important in finding the solution.
