You need to turn off data roaming and mobile data.

You need to Google turning those off for your specific phone and OS version.

How much data allowance do you have per month?

You can set things to only update when on wifi if you don't want ot be constantly turning your mobile data on and off but I tend to jsut do as has been suggested and I keep mobile data turned off and just switch it back on if I want to use internet when out.

It is likely to use some data while you are out and about but, unless your data allowance is very low, it is unlikely to break the limit unless you start doing stuff yourself that will use a lot of data - watching a video, for example.

To answer your question about GPRS, that is an older, slower way of transferring data. So your phone can still use data with 3G off, just not as quickly.
