Does the word for 'people' sound anything like the German word 'Leute' to you?

Yes, they have common ancestry (just as russian люди, polish ludzi or czech lide). the cognate in old English is leod

Yes, and note the singular for "a person" is людина (be especially careful if you speak or learn Russian :)).
