Since I have 3 empty slots in my main panel, can I assume that I can safely add three more breakers? (No additional load anticipated, just want to put some things on their own circuits) Panel is 100 amp, 20 spaces.

The empty slots are there for possible future use, I guess the future is now. Ocassionally you come across a single breaker taking up a whole slot position, and can be replaced by 2 breakers enclosed in the same casing to replace those positions thereby providing for more circuits with no additional slots being filled.
