What happens to those of us who own less than 100 shares, will I be left with a third of a share, or am I left with nothing?

You can own fractional shares. I threw $50 at Google one month, which at the time was something like .08 shares. It may depend on the broker, but I'm not sure.

They're at 35 cents a share right now. 100:1 reverse split would put them at $35. Do they need to reverse it that much? Or, is a reverse split looked at negatively and maybe they expect it to drop some after the reverse split.

True. I had stock in one company that was taken over by another, and they offered one share for three of the original. Plus if you have stock in a company that pays dividends and you reinvest them, you'll always end up with fractions of shares.
