Explore everything or just find exit?
What is the best way to survive in this game?
I always explore it all but I've never got past the catacombs.

If you're having a lot of trouble surviving when exploring, then I would recommend doing the following before going straight to the boss:

Finding the treasure room (item room)
Finding the secret room
Going to the shop if you have at least 15 cents

There really isn't a reason to explore beyond that unless you're feeling lucky. So don't bother finding every room on floors past Basement/Cellar 2.

I usually explore fully up to Mom, after that I go straight towards the boss (occasionally deviating to grab a secret room if I know where it is).
I tend to find that pre-mom my EV (expected value) in items/life is higher than the average loss, while after mom the average loss is higher than the average gain (so after mom I get slightly weaker with each room, on average)

That usually depends on what you're trying to do. If you want to recuperate health, it can be risky. If you want to recharge an item, then yes, exlpore everything.

This however, does not apply to basement/cellar, since the levels are small.

Depends on your playing strategy. It's kind of a gamble, either way.

It definitely depends on your style. I personally explore every room possible including devil rooms. I play very risky and find that it pays off more often than not. The main things I check for are tinted rocks, beggars, devil rooms, and arcades. The most important is the arcade for me. I'd say once you get past mom you should just try and find the boss room immediately. If you aren't strong enough by then I doubt you'll find enough to make it any better.
