Technically you are allowed to use "\n" instead of writing "System.out.println();"; however, it can sometimes make you're code look messy, especially if the string is very long. Personally, I just stick to rewriting "System.out.prinln()" because I feel it makes the code look a lot cleaner.

Yes. The scape sequence (\n) will take you to a new line. So you don't have to use "System.out.println" every time you want to start a new line.

In general, you can totally use either \n or System.out,println().

However, if you have errors and you need to trace back, \n probably makes it harder for your debugging process.

Also, I don't think it is a good idea to use multiple \n in one statement. For example, System.out.println("\n \n \n ").
