All prices, online and local, are listed on myswissalps.com/ swisstravelpass/ price. Online is a bit cheaper. Also it allows you to pay in GBP, so you may save on bank fees & exchange rates, and you save time by printing it at home.
The pass is valid for full calendar days only. It's explained here.
A passport copy is not sufficient, officially. I don't know whether it's a problem in reality. Personally I prefer to travel with the actual passport and have a copy somewhere else just in case. I think the risk of loosing it is a lot bigger than getting robbed, although you do need to pay attention in crowded places.
