Depends on what you are on probation for, what your prior record is and how well you have done on probation til now. You can be sentenced to the maximum for the offense of conviction theoretically.

Depends on the judge. Some will let you slide on one dirty test. Others will give you 30 days. A lot depends on what probation.

Depends on what you are on probation for and whether you have had other dirty test or other violations. The maximum sentence would be the maximum sentence for the offense you are on probation for. That's unlikely though if there have been no other violations.

Probation violation can put you in jail for the time you were sentenced to on the original charge. Read your sentencing and probation report.
