As it happens - I blew the low beam in an H4 on Friday night. By comparing it
with a good spare, I can confirm your pinout.

Can't comment - no sealed beams here.

On the 170/100s I'm staring at right now, each is a single filament.

Central Auto Spares in Wellingborough (UK) does them for GBP8 ($12) each in
boxes of ten.
I bought my first box in May - I sold two, and I'm now down to three spares. I
just ordered a fresh box today.
