comment Delete all survey responses
I have assumed a relatively small/medium sized list for the deletion code. If you have a large list, you may be better of using a batch deletion command to improve performance.

comment How long does Upgrade-SPSite takes to upgrade a site collection?
As another test after this completes, you could try running Test-SPSite to do a site collection health check. This may highlight any specific issues (other than the large no. subsites).

Did you specify VersionUpgrade as a parameter? Or just Build-to-build upgrade?

comment How long does Upgrade-SPSite takes to upgrade a site collection?
I know you are doing this to test the upgrade path to 2013, but it could be a good opportunity to split that many subsites into separate site collections (perhaps, for example in the SP2010 environment) which will help with maintenance in the future.

comment SharePoint 2013 connecting with site-mailbox
Yep, one of the features readily available on O365 which will take a while for uptake for on-prem SP2013 installs.

comment How to programmatically check if the current user has permissions to a site collection?
Assuming you are using Sharepoint 2010 and above. (which is reasonable, but thought I would add it anyway).

comment Self-service site creation (e.g. MySites) - specify Content DB
Thanks - yes that was my line of thinking - host named site collections. The round robin is not ideal as some my sites could end up in other sites content Dbs. Looks like MySites still needs to be in its own web application. :)
