DNA length

I was wondering if anyone can shed light on some things for me.
Apologies if this is the wrong place to ask.

Q1. Is the length of the DNA the same among all members of the 
    same species?

Q2. Are the lengths of DNA in different species all different?

Q3. Can offspring of a species have different length DNA from
    their parents and survive?

Q4. If Q2=Yes, how do evolutionists explain how the DNA length
    changes during evolution into a new species?

Thanks for any replies.
