Future of ABAP regarding S4 HANA ?

I am an ABAP developer for a SAP Partner. All our projects are based on R/3 systems. I was never a part of a S4 HANA project. So I have a couple of question in my mind:

1. Is it still acceptable to setup an ABAP Application Server in a S4 HANA environment or XS-Engine is the only Application Server in S4 HANA?

2. Can I still develop applications using ABAP for S4 HANA? What are the disadvantages?

3. Are there still old GUI screens in S4 HANA or are all the screens developed with UI5?

4. Is this scenario correct: Develop UIs in SAPUI5 and create OData Service in XS-Engine ?

5. What is the road-map for ABAP regarding S4 HANA? Is ABAP still be around to be used in new technologies or will it be a relic for developing R3 systems?

If you'd be kind enough to ease my confusion, I'd be happy.
