'The job' is to kill Elliston's wife.
No, he doesn't follow Elliston's instructions. He kills the wrong person. He uses his left hand only and he hides rather than steals the jewellery box.
1 No, he doesn't. He had seen her face through the window of the servants'room and knew who she was. He covered her face with a blanket because he didn't want Elliston to see her face and realise what had happened.
2 He wants to make it look like Elliston has killed her.
