    You'll need to take it to a certified tech to handle it's repair and recharge as R134a under pressure can be dangerous to your eyes/skin.

    Other than that,, there's nothing keeping you from driving the car.

    You don't need A/C..

    A dealer will do it but if you know of any other reputable shops I'd try them first.

    Depending on your means a dealer can take you over the coals sometimes.

    If you purchased a warranty, check it to be sure whether or not the A/C and HVAC systems are covered.

    I will add that the AC system has a pressure switch that will keep the system from engaging when the pressure drops below a certain point. Like Smittro said, the car is fine to drive and you will not hurt anything pending repairs.
