    Odata services exposed from NW gateway can be used instead of BAPI/RFC and it is recommended by SAP now since offline capabilities are going to be added with apps based on the Odata services.

    Now we go for BAPI/RFC if the requirement is an offline mobile application (update operations can be performed while the app is offline, once the app comes online it will be updated to backend) and Odata service for online mobile apps. The bunch of apps released by SAP(present is apple store, google play etc) are based on Odata services.

    Not sure what you mean, but you can also access web services from ERP, CRM, etc.  Granted RFC/BAPI is more efficient in general terms, but sometimes you may wish to go the webservice route.
