Never, never use shampoo to clean any brush!! You will break down the bristles and they will end up frayed, looking like split ends on fried hair. Use a cleaner specifically designed for cleansing makeup brushes, like Clinique's Brush Cleaner. You dont want to saturate bristles of a dry product brush. Instead, wet a tissue with the brush cleaner and gently wipe the bristles. Set your brush out overnight to dry. Fluff with a soft towel in the morning and, voila!

I have always washed mine with baby shampoo, because it's synthetic hair it doesn't ruin it at all, it's still super soft! Brush cleaner would work fine for it too.

yes, you can use a brush shampoo and it won't ruin the texture.

I use baby wash, because it's really gentle. I would think it would depend on the kind of shampoo you use. As long as it's a gentle formula, you should be ok.

I used baby shampoo to wash it (just like I use on my MAC makeup brushes) and it worked just fine. It takes a while to dry though, so make sure you lay it flat (so the water doesnt soak into the brush and rust it) and dont get any water past the black metal part.
