the floor. But, it really depends if there are any other architectural details that you might want to accent like a window sill. A bathroom could be much higher say up to 54"

There is no standard.
More than 31". Less than 49". 38.2% of the way from the floor to the ceiling. Lower than the top of the chair-backs in the room. Anything EXCEPT exactly half-way up. Meet as many of those criteria as you can.

Slowly slide a chair backwards towards the wall. Gently. The molding should be the correct height to prevent chairs from damaging the wall.

This varies. Place it where the crest rail of the chair touches the wall, maybe somewhere 28 to 36 inches.
