First is, I'm guessing its because I am still low level, but I can't sneak around anything.
Get the Muffle spell, you can buy it from the Jarl's wizard in Whiterun. Until you level up sneak and put some perks on it it's virtually impossible to move and stay hidden without Muffle.

But (I don't know much about vampirism in skyrim so this is based on my knowledge of what it was like in oblivion), isn't it only treated as a disease for the first X days before you become a proper vampire? After that isn't it just a semi-permanent set of buffs and powers? If not, then doesn't that mean that you can be cured of vampirism simply by praying at one of the divines' shrines?
Yes, you can be cured before becoming a vampire by using one of the Divines' altars. Afterwards, it's not so easy, but I think it's still possible to be cured via a quest, which was the case in the last two games.

Because nothing has a right to look that beautiful yet deadly, and because illusion, alteration, and conjuration are only viable for a pure mage?
Alteration and conjuration? Really? Those seem viable for non-pure mages. I mean, they're both schools where you can cast your biggest spell before combat, then just pull out your weapon and fight like normal, except with +60 armour or a fire atronach backing you up. Also, paralysis has good synergy with being able to chop people to bits while they're down. The Muffle spell in Illusion is useful if you like to sneak around, and Invisibility might be useful late game, but other than that I don't think Illusion is really viable even (especially?) if you are a pure mage. Or not worth spending perks on, anyway. You can cast Muffle just fine with no investment.
Destruction is the school that seems particularly bad for impure mages, if you ask me. If you can already do high damage with weapons I can't really see the point in using Destruction. Having a weapon in one hand and a fireball in the other just doesn't work as well as weapon and shield, or a two-handed weapon, or doublecast firebolt with Impact. Also, I think you really need to make an investment in Destruction for it to work well - that means spending enough perks for Dual Cast, Impact, and +50% fire or shock damage, plus enough magicka or +Destruction gear to be able to not run out of magicka after one fireball. It seems like you'd do better just putting all that into weapon and armour skill instead, or something like sneak or the crafting skills, which work with your weapons instead of against them. Although if want a ranged attack and don't want to use a bow it might be somewhat useful, I guess?
