Yes, gums do heal from cuts, but time of healing will depend on the severity and depth of a cut. Some cuts have to be sutured up.
Yes, time will heal your gum.

Yes, gums heal well from cuts.

Yes, it does. Imagine after one extraction the socket is huge and the gum and bone grow and heal perfectly without any scar. The soft tissue of the mouth are very good and heal relatively fast.

It depends on the size of the cut. May need sutures to heal.
