It depends on your style of learning and what helps you revise most efficiently. I would suggest just doing more problems rather than making notes, but that's just my preference...

Depends what you are doing. For core maths no, except for the c3 identities.
For m1 and s1 yes, since it is more logical and applied and you need to remember more

It depends. Would it help you?
Personally, I would find it a waste of time for maths but it depends what maths you are doing as well.

For GCSE I made notes however I barely used them and ended up getting an A*. If I struggled with something I ALWAYS asked my teacher for help. It's very important with Maths to make sure you understand the foundation of WHY you do this and that, not just plugging in some numbers into a formula because you've been told to (although that's what most of GCSE maths is tbh). If you have a good Maths teacher they will explain things in great depth.
If you're asking this concerning revision then the most important thing for Maths is to do past papers ONCE you have fully understood each and every topic on your syllabus. Then you can target what you really struggle at so you can focus your revision on that. That's why notes don't really help me much because they explain the concept yes but then I need to apply it.
For A-level Maths it's probably best to make notes though haha.
