    This word means "beautiful".
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    Most likely "more beautiful".

    No.

    You are thinking by writing pre-kras-nee he was writing прекраснее.
    the ee in -nee is the English ee in feet, not a Russian ee ending. Basically he was just trying to write прекрасный.
