Not sure about the US, but in the UK they stop recruiting if they've already filled the position - I've had a couple of banks get back to me after I've applied saying this. Bit frustrating because it feels like a waste and they might be missing out on decent talent, but obviously applying early shows them that you're keen.

Doesn't help per se but some banks interview on a rolling basis so if you are prepared, applying early would make sense

It won't really help unless its rolling basis or if the bank has a specific early application cycle (MS had this for SA 2018 in 2017 for example)

I would wait until you have a summer internship secured to make your resume stronger

Yes - in my experience, applying early definitely helps as some places will start looking at resumes as they come in
