[PVE-User] Proxmox 3.4 upgrade questions

We are thinking about upgrading our existing Proxmox 3.4 cluster and I 
was hoping to get some insight on a few of our currently open questions:

1)Should we stop at Proxmox 4.4 or does Proxmox 5.0 seem stable enough 
for production environments at this time?

2)Is it possible to have 2 separate Proxmox clusters on the same 
subnet?  We are trying to decide on an in place upgrade vs setting up a 
new cluster and moving things over in a more controlled manor.

If we decided to invest in some new hardware for a new cluster we would 
have to run 2 clusters on the same subnet for several weeks while the 
migration took place...is this an issue?

3)We are wondering about real world upgrade experiences in terms of 
people who decided to do the in place upgrade...how many issues...if any 
were raised using the apt-get upgrade method?

If you had to do it again would you still do it the same way?

Thanks in advance for any advice that are willing and able to provide.
