The atmosphere is thinner at higher altitudes, so do solar panels get more energy from the sun?

Does the cold help or hinder their performance?

Is a solar panel in space with no atmosphere is the most efficient?

Yes but it is a very small effect (<1%), more important is if the panel is motorized to track the sun during the day. Cold air is thicker but a cold panel is actually more efficient, this is a bigger effect ( ~10 to 20%). Lots of info on google.
