Yes, they follow the coast line as a reference point
They follow the Great Circle route, which involves a short stint over the water. HOwever, there is no difference than flying over land, the route the plane will follow will be the same distance or closer to other airports. Besides, the odds of there being even a minor incident are 1:1,550,000. Don't worry, the flight crew must have thousands of hours experience before they are allowed to fly
No. The typical routing out of the northeast to Tampa would not take you over the water. Not that it should make much difference, but you'll most likely be over land.
