> If my SEPM is in latest version 12.1 RU3 and my clients are still running SEP11. Can my SEP 11 client still get definitions from my SEPM?

> If my SEPM is 12.1 RU3 and I promote one GUP (with SEP 11 installed). Will my GUP able to update clients with SEP 11 version?

Ans: YES

12.1.3 can update all previous version of clients ( 11.x)
 
>  If my GUP is running SEP 11 client. Will it be able to update both SEP 11 and SEP 12 clients?
 
No. GUP should be of 12.1.3 to update 11.x clients and 12.1.3 clients
 
> Does GUP update all types of definitions such as NTP, PTP or only AV/AS?
 
yes it will udpate All definitions even if gup is installed with only AV/AS

Yes, SEP 11 GUP can provide updates to SEP 12 and SEP 11 clients, however you need to work on the upgrade plan for the GUP as well.

PTP is now Sonar in 12.x

SEP 11.x GUP will not know anything about Sonar updates.Eventually it will not update 12.x clients.

GUP is storing the definition and processing it to the the clients that have requested from SEPM, hence GUP running on SEP 11 can still provide the definition to SEP 12 clients. Unless someone has different opinion.
