1. When is the proper time to cut in or deep?

2. If the disc is on the left side of the field and I'm cutting on the right side, what exactly should I be doing?

3.If another cutter gets the disc, what's my continuation cut?

I am not an elite coach by any means but I will give you my opinions and we can see where we go from there.

1.The first question is tricky because there is more to making a cut then just getting the disc. A lot of cuts are to set up other people not to get the disc directly.
The easiest answer would be make a cut to an open area and not to where another member of your team wants to go. Make sure you cut and bring someone with you, a defender. You want to pull your guy away from the play of the disc, in order to remove him from the play.

If you are wanting to cut for the disc, then you should cut whenever you see your teammate is about to catch the disc. If you have started your cut as he grabs it, he should be able to quickly look at you for the continuation.

Cutting is about timing and position more than speed. Thats why the old guys still own the rookies because they know how to play more than just sprinting around the field.

Your questions are all pretty open since you provided no sort of situation to work from. But I will shoot some sort of answers. I'll preface with I am not an elite coach either.
1. You should be starting your cut either direction as the player before you is catching the disc so he has a quick continuation throw before his defenders gets a good mark on him. Whether your cut is in or out is entirely dependent on what is happening on the field so you cant say you should definitely go deep on X cut every time. I would say you don't want to cut deep as the first cut ever unless its a set play your team called. I'd probably go deep as the second or third cut depending how the prior cuts go but thats very dependent on the other cuts.
2. You should be doing 2 things in my opinion a. moving to keep your defender from poaching even if all you do is jog downfield and back and b. positioning yourself on the field to make a cut when needed so if the disc gets more centered or reset to the handlers and swung you are ready or if a good deep cut occurs your able to make as needed. Also as others players make cuts if they clear properly across the field you should be sort of rotating toward the action.
3. Depends entirely on the situation, the thrower, your defender, etc, etc.
