It's allowed, certain passages lend themselves to a little pedal. I rarely use it, just for connective purposes, as imperceptible as possible.

Haydn only wrote two pedal marks in his piano music, in the Sonata in C, HobXVI:50. Anything else you see will be editorial.

Only occasionally and never for more than two notes. I usually use it to connect/voice chords.
Fortune favours the musical.
