Yes to the first two, no to the latter.

Sometimes I do. Compiler tends to catch those, then I fix them.
Typos and all, though, I push bad code to the master very seldom.
You caught a bug of mine once, when I initialized a boolean incorrectly,
but can you remember any other time you did?
If you take a look at the comments in my code you'll see I trypo much
less than I do in my change comments. I review those more carefully.
I review code more carefully than that.
