Which foot does the defending 0.9 m (3 ft) start from?

If the player takes 3 consecutive fluid steps 1-2-3, then the defending player marks from where the player stops i.e. 2nd foot. However, if the player takes the normal 1-2 steps, pauses and then steps again. The defending player can mark from the landing foot (1st foot) where the pause took place

Can the GS/GA catch the ball outside the goal circle and using the three steps allowed, enter the goal circle and shoot?

No, the GS/GA must not have had contact with the ground outside the goal circle prior to shooting.

Is a player allowed to take two steps pause and then take another step to make the defender retreat?

No, the three steps are in one consecutive moment. If the player stops after taking two steps the nearer foot is considered the landing foot. If they then choose to step again, this will be deemed as footwork.
