In general, "My site" is a very poor term. Here are the terms that I typically use:
"My Site Host" site collection. This is typically a single site collection that can allow all users to see "About Me" and allow functions such as "People Search". This site collection can exist without a single "Personal site" and without "One Drive For business libraries". ...
OneDrive is different with MySites. Unless you were referring to OneDrive for business which is the same with MySites

Alternatively you can check other solutions, but ...
Yes, but there 2 things you have to make sure
User profile sync is enabled, photo property properly mapped n imported.

Error messages in SharePoint usually come with Corelation ID. Use it to find relevant entries in ULS logs.
By default you can find SharePoint logs in 15 hive, under:
C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\LOGS
You can use Merge-SPLogFile PowerShell cmdlet to gather logs from all servers and ULS Viewer to open log files.
