Default Gundrones on Vehicles forming a unit

Hi, a couple of questions that popped during last nights game...

1) If the gundrones disembark, do they count as a gun drone squadron? If so - can the two gundrones on a fish still form a unit? (unitsize 4-8)
2) Can the disembarked gundrones move freely away from the vehicle?
3) Can the gundrones that has disembarked claim objectives?
4) Does the opponent gain any victorypoints for disembarked and destroyed gundrones?

Any kind of help, much appriciated... I find the drones a bit confusing...

Gun drones attached to devilfish count as a normal unit of passangers. However, they are not scoring units and thus cannot claim objectives & cannot join other drones to make a bigger unit. Since their cost is payed for in the devilfish's base cost your opponent scores no victory points for them; only for the devilfish.
Hope that made a little sense.

EDIT: Dang, you beat me to first reply.

Exactly as Walrus Man has put it. I use them as a 'free' unit of drones, they zip around being very good distractions to the opposing army, and more often than not do wonders with blocking assaults and even taking down enemy models. Instantly worth it when the opponent gains nothing for taking them down.
