(Prospective customer) Voicemail on iPhone questions

Hello,
As the title says, I'm currently looking at the Koodo plans, to use with my (unlocked) iPhone SE.

So a few questions about voicemail:
1a) Does Koodo support Visual VoiceMail? I've read this  so I suppose the answer is yes.
1b) Are there fees for the Visual VoiceMail option? I've read this that says that there used to be a fee, but I'm not sure if there's still one or not.

2a) WITHOUT Visual VoiceMail, I understand that the voicemail limits are up to 10 messages of up to 5 minutes each, kept for up to 10 days, as said here. Correct?
2b) WITH Visual VoiceMail, I understand that those limits doesn't really matter, as the messages are downloaded to the phone as soon as they're recorded, and deleted from the Koodo server at the same time. So you can't really reach the 10 messages limit or the 10 days limit, unless your phone is offline for some time. Correct?

3) Is it possible to download Visual VoiceMail messages over wifi? Said otherwise, when I'm traveling outside Canada, is it possible to download voice mails without incurring data roaming fees? I've searched, and the general answer seems to say that the iPhone supports it, but it depends on the configuration used by the provider (Koodo). So, is it possible on Koodo?

Thanks.

1) Visual Voicemail is still a $2 monthly add-on
2) Yes
3) No. It may work for carriers that have implemented Wi-fi calling.

Thanks David. Not the answers I was hoping for, but much appreciated nonetheless. I don't see the "this question is answered" button, but feel free to mark it as such.
As a side note, I've been browsing this forum a bit, and I'm impressed by the overall quality of the answers offered.
