Welcome to GN. I hope you find the information you are looking for.

Have you tried searching tab sites for the song?

If I had to guess... I'd say one strum per silible.

E doesn't = MC2, E = Fb

I've covered this one, and it is one strum per syllable for the first couple of lines of each verse. After that I use a picking pattern, so I'm just playing single notes out of each chord... the lyrics are laid out in a tick-tock sort of fashion - I think I do two notes on the first syllable, and four on the second in each pattern.
