Hit and Run movement in regards to demons

I have a question in regards to using it with my daemons army specifically in regards to my demon princes and my fiends.

First off this is in regards to the distance moved after passing the test to leave combat. It says to move UP TO 3d6 in a straight line.

Question 1-what confuses me is the "up to". does this mean i must move the full 3d6 in a straight line away from the combat or i can move a maximum of the 3d6 but do not have to meet that maximum example: i roll a 5, a 4, and a 6 for my 3d6. does this mean i have to move a full 15" or can i move say 8" away from the combat?

Question 2-being surrounded and using hit and run. Lets say i have a demon prince who was charged by a horde of orks or gaunts and is alive at the end of the enemies assault phase. I pass my check to leave combat but i am completely encircled by enemy models, can i still leave the combat or do i remain stuck in CC?

Question 3-hit and run in regards to assaulting vehicles. can i use hit and run after assaulting a vehicle? since i can be shot at in the enemy shooting phase can i use hit and run at the end of my assault phase after i assaulted a vehicle. example: My 5 man squad of fiends of slaanesh assault a land raider and after rending it they are unable to destroy it. can i then use hit and run to try and get the fiends to scurry back to my lines so they might not be shot to pieces? or use it to get closer to my foe?

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent

1. Yes "up to" means that distance or less.

2. No you are not trapped by units in combat with you. The ability allows you to move through/away from them. The rules state you ignore units in combat.

3. No, you cannot be "locked" in combat with a non- Walker vehicle.

Strange, but not a Stranger.
