I agree that it would be helpful to have global gradients. In the meantime, as a workaround you could select one of the objects that has the gradient you want to change. Then choose Select > Same Fill Color, and edit the gradient.

You may define the gradient as a graphic style and apply it to your objects. Graphic styles are always global.   You can then change the gradient of one of the graphic style objects and redefine the style in the flyout menu of the Appearance palette in order to change all objects to which the style is applied in one whack.   Still a workaround, but probably the most convenient one at the moment.

No, global is only for solid colors.

Because gradients can be customised too, and not just by color changes.
