I wouldn't switch the engine off. You loose power steering and power brakes with the engine off.

No. It won't hurt it.
I used to do it on my 1985 Celica GT. Had longgg gentle slopes too.

What do you think?

LMAO that is stupid! You do more long-term stress to your engine and ignition system by doing that, not to mention any gas savings you might get are negligible at best. The 3 dollars you save in gas over a years time will be made up for by the hundreds of dollars you pay to replace your starter.

Stick with shifting into neutral for downhills, but don't turn the engine off.

What is the fraction next to the price of gas?

If it was a manual it would be ok, but Even in neutral the tranny is still spinning inside. Make sure you leave you motor running so your tranny will keep pumping ATF. Other than that it is ok, But It is against the law to coast in neutral well at least it is in my state.
