    Display becomes very poor on all TV because signal has less than 1/3 to each TV. Add a TV signal amplifier before the splitter, choose at least has 20dB RF gain.

    A splitter does reduce it as does the length of the run and the quality of the cable.   If the signal is weak in the first place you may need a powered splitter which will boost the signal.

    A splitter will reduce it, but if it's a digital signal those losses may never be noticed in the picture since the TVs will construct an image from the data as long as they can distinguish 1s from 0s and receive all of the bits.  If it's an analog signal the losses may degrade the picture to any level of noticeability.

    Yes. A cheap splitter will half the signal on one TV and send 1/4 signal to the other two.

    A well designed splitter will send the signal evenly to all three at 1/3 strength.
