Well you see, America and Europe vary with recognized breeds. There are 47
accepted rabbit breeds in America there might be more or less in Britain. But another thing is, there are many people that like to experiment to either try to make a new breed or accidents happen, so those mixes end up getting sold to the public as pets so you might think there are hundreds but there aren't. Hares are considered a rabbit. If you want to know all of the accepted official breeds of rabbit or cavy(which is a guinea pig) you can go here:
That's the American Rabbit Breeders Official website.

Rabbits open there eyes around 10 days old.
Congratulations! If it was my dog that had the puppies, I would wait until they were about 10 weeks old to just pet them lightly. I would wait until the pups were around 5 months to really get to know them and to let them get to know their surroundings. The puppies should be petted in front of the mother so that your beagle knows that you aren't going to take her puppies. You might even start letting them out before that. I would wait until they can walk decent enough before they should be let loose around the mother in a area of your house SUPERVISED. Well, this is my opinion and I have 13 dogs and 5 have had a litter.
Not all rabbits need shots, but some rabbits do. Whether or not your rabbits need shots depends on where you live (for instance, in the UK, rabbits need shots against Myxomatosis and VHD; in Canada, they don't need any shots). Your vet can tell you whether or not your rabbit needs shots.
1/2 a cup of Rabbit Pellets. Thompson and Redwood is the best brand. They should also have a small handful of hay. Never give your bunny more then 1.2 a cup of vegies/fruit a day.
