Irregular sleep patterns can and do affect your health. Sleep deprivation can cause all kinds of problems and also lowers your resistance to disease. Lack of sufficient sleep on a regular basis can cause you to have both physical and emotional illnesses. Too much sleep can also be a problem and lead to lethargy and lack of energy.
Yes, but more likely it is due to the other factors which are causing the sleep to be irregular rather than the sleep changes itself. Sleep is generally as important as food, particularly REM sleep, a person unable to REM sleep will die as fast as starving to death. Most people REM about five times a day, usually in one go, same as eating except for the whole all in one go thing... Sleep too is better dispersed throughout the day for consistent energy without over indulging at one time.

Self honesty about what's going on in your life, what you're eating, who you want to be, vs who you are being, followed by modifications towards what you know is best, and content with what you're not sure of, with a goal to find out if it's important, (these all affect [REM] sleep) are the only advice I could give without further details.

Be your best to be low stress. Being unhappy with who you are, or anyone or anything else for that matter, has adverse affects until appropriate behavior modifications are made.
Yes. It can affect your health, depending on your age is how much it can. For someone who is in high school or college you probably would not notice it as much. For someone with a day to day job and family and who is older it may affect more.
