Try width=1.3\textwidth (inside your file you will find this length,  
maybe you define a variable with this width that caption's and table's  
width are synchronised), and also justification=RaggedRight (to enable  
hyphenation in the caption).

By putting some text, an invisible ruler, under it?

\hspace*{-.15\textwidth} ? It needs some non-automatic mathematics...

Because they're floats. And adding a [loc] specification at the end of  
the line with the beginning of the float environment with loc being  
one out of {b, h, t, p} (or capitalised) might make LaTeX consider  
your wish.
