You copy the .exe and all .dll's it depends on to your target machine.
You don't need to copy .dll's provided with Mono (such as mscorlib.dll
and System.dll).

Yes, and the mono runtime is platform-specific.  You'll need Mono for
each platform you want to run your app on (Mac, Linux, Windows), or
install .NET under Windows (assuming your app is portable).

You need to distribute those as well.  Usually you just place them in
the same directory as the .exe.
