Star shapes vary greatly. It's probably best to divide the shape into triangles (or other figures you can find the area of) and deal with those. For symmetric five-pointed stars, the area of a star can be approximated within .024% by taking the distance between two consecutive points, squaring it, and multiplying it by the fraction 13/16.

a nine point star :D

A star is not a specific shape: it is a generic word for a shape which has an even number of vertices. The interior angles at alternate vertices are usually reflex angles. A star can have six or more vertices.

A geometric star shape is concave. A star that is in the sky is convex.

yes

That is usually calculated on the basis of the diameter, using the formula for a sphere, since stars are usually spherical to a good approximation.

The correct term for a "star shape" would be a pentagram, for 5 pointed ones, hexagram for 6, and etc etc. I suppose it was nicknamed the "star" because of its points that streak out similar to a star.

The drawn shape of a star is based on astrological observations from Earth. The actual shape of a star in space is a blazing sphere of super-heated gases.
