No, you need to replace muscle glucose with carbohydrates as well. Starchy carbs are needed.

Depends. If the calories from your protein shakes add up to be more than your daily calorie allowance and you work out enough, you will be able to build muscle. But it's going to be disastrous for your health unless you include veg and fruits in your shakes.

Actually drinking too much protein shake will have a detrimental effect on your liver and kidneys if you're not exercising.
