Hello and a warm Welcome to you!
I doubt that. I don't have any solid data at hand, but I don't think that the majority of TW2-players uses the Steam version. It would also break my heart a little, if even though CDPR went to some trouble to provide the game completely DRM-free, the majority would have chosen the most restrictive DRM version available for TW2.
I don't think it's a good idea. Why? Because as late as the REDkit is released, the number of modders and people interested in mods will not be overwhelming, I guess. So the modding community will be rather small and I'd rather they'd gather in one place (probably the Nexus) than splitting up to Steam, Nexus, and whatnot.
A Pro of using Steam Workshop is that they'd probably get an appearance in the Steam Shop with "Now available with mod tools REDkit and Steam Workshop!", maybe combined with a Steam Deal. That will probably get some additional attention, but I'm not sure it's worth splitting up for it.

CDPR said that they are thinking about their own solution/platform for TW2 mods, but they didn't say anything definitive.
For me all mods should be in one place, so I'm against Steam Workshop.

Yes, if creator of mod will bother to upload in different place too.

And yeah, absolutely. I think it was make the process of installing and managing mods a lot smoother. It also ensures reliability, in the case you reformat your computer but forget to make a back up of all the mods you have. Finding all of them again can be a chore so it'd be nice to have a plan-B.
So yeah, why not!
