Artisan Bread in 5: questions

Hi all...I'm trying out the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a day method for bread baking. I have three questions:

1-How dark should it be when it is done? Mine 1st attempt was a blonde color after 35 minutes and it was underdone.
2-I found the bread to be much too salty for my taste. Can the 1.5 T of kosher salt be reduced without changing the bread?
3-At the end of baking, should the water bath still have water remaining in it or should it have gone dry?

Many thanks!
