When naming a compound, ethylenediamine will always follow the Bis-, tris-, tetrakis- etc. rule right?

That's right, because it already has "di" in its name.

Yes, as it's a polydentate ligand.

Yes, that's correct. If a ligand already contains di-, tri-, tetra-, etc., or if it's a polydentate ligand, the prefixes bis-, tris-, tetrakis-, pentakis-, hexakis-, etc. are used instead.
