There are two future tenses; near future or futur proche and future or futur. The difference is I'm going to... vs. I will...For near future you use aller + verb (infinitive). Je vais venir, Vous allez finir, etc. The future tense is the infinitive plus the endings of avoir. Avoir - conjugated w/ endings capitalized below J'AI, Tu AS, Il A, Nous avONS, Vous avEZ, Elles ONT The future for finir would become Je finirAI, Tu finirAS, On finirA, Nous finirONS, Vous finirEZ, Ils finirONT.
From the need to ease pronounciation and avoid sound conflicts (hiatus). The choice of a T refers to the usual ending of 3rd group verbs at the 3rd person singular (il veut, for example).
You may also find "vas-y" (meaning Go!), where an -s is added with the same logic, because the regular imperative form is "Va!"
I don't know about your experience with the average French people, but I can tell you for sure that in speech, questions ending in "quoi" are more frequent than those starting with "qu'est-ce que" - especially among children, teens, and even adults in informal situations.
