Let me try to answer your questions:
  1. It depends. There are a couple of possibilities.
    1. They discover you cannot meet the residence requirement in time and revoke your PR status on the spot.
    2. They discover you have not met the residence requirement but let you in. When you do apply for a new PR Card, you are granted one only for a year or two.
    3. They either don't discover you won't meet the requirement or do discover it but don't care, and let you in. When you renew you are still granted a new 5-year Card (provided you wait to renew and don't leave again after 40 days).
  2. The date your PR Card was issued is the date that matters.
  3. No, visiting in Canada in 2011 has nothing to do with this. You're thinking of citizenship applications, I think. Even then, those days would have to be more recent than 9 years ago.
  4. Your provincial health insurance requires residence in the province. If you've been gone for more than 3 months it's very likely you do not have any coverage right now.
Hope this helps.
