Some of our group members have very diametric schedules and can't always make the same sessions. Does the campaign allow for characters to sit out certain quests and then come in later on? And can they still level with the rest of the group?

There are no "rules" for dropping out of a campaign. It might not hurt to just let it happen, then when they come back give them campaign equivalent XP/Gold. What might be easier though is to allow one of the other players to just play for him during his absences. It's not hard to control 2 heroes, and the game can continue without any other interruptions.

My eight year old daughter plays occasionally with us, and has dropped in and out of games mid-quest, between encounters. It seems to work ok if you remember to scale monsters appropriately to the number of heroes.

Gold is pooled, so no harm done there. If the heroes are getting smashed and it's becauseshe is behind on abilities, I will toss her a few extra XP prior to the start of the quest to keep her competitive with the other heroes. So far, it seems to be working out extremely well.
