"Question 1: Will it be possible to cover whole trip through bus/shared taxi?"

Saurabh,

I am travelling solo to Leh in March 2017 and planning to stay there for 2 months. As far as I have checked the frequency of the buses in Leh is limited, like once or twice a week. If this is true and if you are depending on public transport, you may have to rearrange your itinerary accordingly.
Regarding the accommodation, I am still enquiring.

It's not. Even in the winter there are more than daily transports to Leh along the main artery Srinagar-Leh-Manali. Going back to Leh I don't even look at bus schedules , I just walk up to the road and see who picks me up first , bus or shared cab .

Nubra is served by daily shared cabs , and bus every second day.

The Tso's is where you'll need to be part of a tourist group , the local bus runs once a week.

Having said all this the above plan is way too much time in cars , and no safety margin for esp. Manali-Leh road going out . This happens more when the road has just opened , and last year that was June 15th - updates on my blog below.

Vistet,

I am planning to stay for a month or so in March-April 2017 depending on the accommodation costs. How much can expect to get a homestay for in Pangong Tso (Spangmik or Merek), Nubra, Turtuk, Tso Moriri(Karzok)?
I find that homestays in Karzok charge as low as Rs.300 with food since it is a remote place. Is this true? If so, what about the other places?

Thanks!

In Karzok in 300 you will find the accomodation where in night you feel air coming from the roof / side opening and the other stay option there which is only for name sake is resort is also bad in shape but you will not face any issue in night and have comfortable sleep, however it cost anything between 2000 to 2500 per room for 2 person with dinner and breakfast.

I missed to note you mentioned Mar April. That is not the right time to visit Tso Moriri
