Drone bay capacity is a limit of how many drones you can carry in your ship, Drones skill level is is a limit of how many drones you can control at once and drone bandwidth of your ship is a limit of how many drones you carry you can actually deploy.

Yes they will carry 5% more ore per level of Mining Drone Operation
This is cumulative with Drone Interfacing (+20% extra per level).
There is even a rig Drone Mining Augmentor (Mining Amount Bonus 10 %).

In practice, mining with drones is hardly worth it but as a secondary activity while mining with lazors or strip miners it is something to do.

I know this isn't really your question, but as a general piece of advice, just don't use mining drones.

If you're mining, mine with ship-mounted mining lasers/strip miners, use your drones (if any) for scout drones set on aggressive so that any belt 'rats get automatically blown up. If you're planning to use them to mine from an otherwise combat-fit ship... why are you doing that?
