There can be no convex polygon with three parallel sides. There are concave polygons with 6 or more sides that have three parallel lines.

A four-sided polygon with opposite sides parallel could be a square, a rectangle, or a rhombus.If it has one pair of opposite, parallel sides, then it is a trapezoid. If it has two pairs of opposite, parallel sides, then it is a parallelogram.

rhombus

A polygon with 4 or more sides can meet these requirements.

A polygon with n sides can have n pairs of parallel sides (if n is even) or (n-1)/2 pairs if n is odd AND greater than 3. But it need not have any.

No. A parallelogram, for example, is not a regular polygon. Even a rhombus, with parallel sides of equal lengths is not.

Not all polygon have two pairs of parallel sides. For example, a square will, but not a triangle.
