Send all three LORs. Not more than three, though. From what I've read, the admissions deans seem to agree that more than three is excessive, but three or less is fine.

I agree with three as well. That's what I sent. More than 3 is like bragging.

How related are they? It really depends on whether each LOR is going to express something new about you or not.

In all cases you should send 2, you can be more selective about the third if it is largely redundant with one of the other two.
