The questions are timed. You get 40/40 if you answer them all correctly and quickly. If you take too long (i.e. you have to Google a question or two) then they start to deduct points.

The monthly survey can be found here: http://rewards.xbox.com/

The email was about 'VIP Exclusives Bonuses' and netted me an additional 100 MSP last month.

I've yet to get the 100 msp from purchasing something on live. Sent info to their "response team" weeks ago. >_>

It is only valid for the first time you purchase something from the XBL Marketplace. So, if you had ordered something before you joined the Rewards Program, you won't be getting the rewards.

Most of the awards are targeted at people new to XBL. The existing members, especially ones that have been active on Live for a while, probably won't qualify for most of them any more.

The reward is MSP. Deposited into your XBL account once a month, if you have accrued 100 MSP or more at the end of the month (if you didn't manage to get 100 MSP, goes towards the next month).

You can usually earn at least 20 MSP per month by completing the survey. Plus, additional points for extending your Gold, referring people that sign up for Gold, etc. And be sure to keep an eye on your emails as they have occasional bonus award offerings.

I had 200 MSP credited to my account for last month. 80 were carried over from the previous month(s), plus 120 from the survey and the from the VIP Exclusives Bonus Award (not sure what I did to get that).

is there a way to find out what a code is for without using it?

When you enter it ON YOUR CONSOLE you will get a confirmation screen that indicates what the code is BEFORE you redeem it.

Note: you can connect most USB computer keyboards to the console's USB port to make entering the code(s) somewhat easier. Still not as easy as cutting-n-pasting to the xbox.com web site, but way better than using the onscreen character selection method.

pretty sure u can enter the code on xbox.com to see what it is, it'll ask you to confirm before actually redeeming.

Sadly, there is no confirmation screen on the web site. When you submit the code at xbox.com it is instantly redeemed.
