From my understanding, you normally can't get it this way but if you have Hep B and suspect you contracted it to a relative, I've read it can be stopped as long as the vaccination is started within the first 24-48 hours (anyone can correct me if I am wrong on this though)

you cant get hbv that way, even sharing same sandwich is difficult

if you get hbv as an adult you ll clear it by immune system anyway, only 2.8% of adults get chronic
