Just replying for this part: .nfs* files are created by the nfs server
when on of its client removes a file while another client has the very
same file opened. the nfs server keeps the .nfs* file around until the
last client closes the file, after that it removes the .nfs* file.

About the number of digits after '.nfs' I'm not sure there's a
standard for it, but I saw files with more that 6 chars after that.
