    1-How Can Data be copied from (Internal Storage) to an (SD card)
    With a file manager. (Copy it, then paste it to the card, don't move it. Then, if the copy was successful, delete the original. If a copy goes bad you still have the original and can copy it again. If a move blows in the middle [or the battery dies during a move] you can lose both the original and the copy.)

    2-After the transfer of Data, can the data be deleted on the (Internal Storage) while being maintained on the SD card and accessible?
    Assuming that the app that accesses it can be told to access it from the card (some can, some can't), yes. If it's media, restart the phone after deleting the originals and the phone will "know" that the files are on the card.

    3-Can this transfer/delete be set up automatically?
    Yes, it's a trivial shell script - if you know shell scripting. (Can it be set up to do it automatically periodically, without your doing anything? Only if you can write a "run on startup" script, or if you know how to use cron (which is an external Linux function).
