Surely your DP knows the answers to these questions?

Or better yet, your vfx supervisor. They'll know the specific path they want to take for the vfx pipeline (generally, they want to convert everything to .dpx anyway).
For vfx work, I always start by finding out what will work best for the actual workflow they intend to use, and work backwards from there. Sometimes, that means shooting raw, but often it doesn't.
Just ask them, they'll know what they want.
