A Bronsted acid is simply defined as a proton donor.

A polyprotic acid is an acid can give multiple H+ ions to a solution, so yes, it is considered a Bronsted acid.

Bronsted-Lowry acids are just one way of looking at acids (as an H+ donor).

A Lewis acid is a molecule that will accept an electron pair from a compound, and it is often also a BL acid because H+ can do just that.

Yes they are, polyprotic acids/bases are simply bronsted acids/bases that can donate/accept more than one proton.
