Yes, you do! You burn calories when you type too. Any movement (energy expended) will burn calories (energy ingested). Though, the more you put in (food and drinks), the more you got to expend (move and work out) in order to lose weight.

To keep the same weight one takes in as many calories as they burn each day. Swinging can definitely burn more calories (as long as you move legs and pull/push with your arms) much more than typing. It can burn just as much or more than a slow walk for the same time period.

you burn calories sleeping. but it isn't a lot. you may have to go out and jog for a good 90 minutes just to burn off the calories from a small mcdonalds fries. yes you burn calories swinging, but barely enough to be proud of.

Yes because you are working out your legs. Technically you burn calories just by simply sitting there too, but obviously you don't burn anywhere near as much as if you were swinging or doing other exercises.
