You can use Mailman on any number of domains. The only restriction with
standard GNU Mailman 2.1.x is tha list names must be globally unique
in the installation.

There are 3 components to this.

1) The web server must recognize the appropriate Mailman ScriptAlias,
Alias, etc. directives in all the domains.

2) The MTA must know how to deliver the mail to Mailman for all the
list addresses.

3) There should be appropriate add_virtualhost() directives and for
Postfix integration with Postfix virtual domains, appropriate

See the FAQ at http://wiki.list.org/x/gIA9 for more, particularly the
part about fix_url.

Maybe. You need to make sure the web server will apply the Mailman
related configuration directives to the host(s) yoiu want to use.
