Relocating to KL !! Please help !! :)) (Kuala Lumpur)

Hi guys, how are you doing?

My name is Alberto and I will arrive to KL during October to live there permanently. I have some basic doubts about the place, could anyone help?

1- Where should I check (websites, agents, etc) for accomodation (not far from Pavilion Mall in Jalan Bukit Bintang, where Ill work)?
2- Any idea about the rentals for a small/average studio for one person (minimum, average)?
3- Is it normal to pay the rent on a monthly/quarterly basis or usually how does it work? deposits? I heard that sometimes they ask you to pay one full year in advance...LOL
4- Regarding bank accounts, is it easy to open one by a foreigner?
5- In general terms, how much money do I need, at least, ir order to have a "normal" (pay the bills for a studio, eat outside regularly and have a decent social life, I'm on my 30s) life in KL? Maybe around 5.000RM?

Thanks a lot for your help!!
