Dear Student,
The solutions to your 1st and 4th queries have been provided below:

1. Such practices were also found during the Medieval period.People were divided into groups or jatis. There were casts, and sub-castes based on their backgrounds and occupations. Ranks were not permanent and changed according to the power, and resources controlled by the member of jati or caste. 

Social and economic difference emerged between peasants too.  Some were rich and kept cattle, while others did artisanal work along with agriculture.

4. Medieval Period was a period of great mobility. People travelled long distances in groups. They moved from one place to another in search of opportunity. Indian subcontinent held immense wealth for people. The Rajputs, Marathas, Sikhs, Jats and Kayasthas used the opportunity to become politically affluent. 
Mobility was related to opportunity. People learned new crafts and art, explored new trade routes and markets, found new occupations and opportunities to amass wealth. 
Even today people go to foreign countries and metro cities for better work opportunities. People from villages move to metro cities to learn new skill and for new work opportunities.
