No, Kong: Skull Island is a reboot and is not connected to any previous version of the character. This film is set in the same universe as Legendary Pictures' Godzilla and in the year 1973. This film is meant to introduce Kong in anticipation of an onscreen crossover featuring him and Godzilla in 2020.

Kong: Skull Island is confirmed to be taking place in the same universe as Legendary Pictures' Godzilla, but it is set in the years 1944 and 1973, placing it before and after the U.S. military used an atomic bomb in an attempt to kill Godzilla in 1954, but before the main events of the film in 1999 and 2014.

The film includes several indirect references to Godzilla: Bill Randa (John Goodman) mentions he works for Monarch, a scientific organization that also featured heavily in Godzilla; at one point, he mentions that he was the only survivor of a naval ship that was attacked and destroyed by a MUTO (massive unidentified terrestrial organism), and has been obsessed with finding these creatures ever since. The term MUTO is also used in Godzilla, and it is heavily implied that it was Godzilla who destroyed Randa's ship. Like in Godzilla, Randa also confirms that the 1954 nuclear test wasn't a test, but an attempt to kill the MUTO. In the post-credit scene, Houston Brooks (Corey Hawkins) shows pictures of sites found by his organisation that contain evidence of the presence of several other large creatures like Kong, Godzilla being among them. As the screen blacks out, Godzilla's distinct roar can be heard. This scene alludes to the upcoming film Godzilla: King of Monsters, in order to build up to Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020.

Yes, one during the credits and one at the very end.

No, while Kong is massive, he is still smaller than Godzilla. However, in this film, it's mentioned that Kong has been around for a long time and will continue to grow. So assuming the crossover film takes place in the modern day, that would give Kong nearly 50 more years of growth.
