Sure you can apply for an LTVP for her. No problem. Whether or not it is approved is a different story. You won't know the answer to that until you try.

1. No. You need to be married first before you can apply for LTVP+.

2. In LTVP+ scheme, I think the couple must be married for at least 3 years. Here it is stated by ICA http://www.ica.gov.sg/news_details.aspx?nid=12665

Not quite. LTVP+ is for those with Singaporean spouse only, and preferably with Singaporean child (if without, minimum 3 years of marriage will be taken into account among other factors)
