I would recommend joints greater than 1/4 inch.
No... I would wait for few months to avoid blowout ....
The QUIKRETE® All Purpose Sand does not have to be removed. QUIKRETE® PowerLoc Jointing Sand or Polymeric Jointing Sand can be used for this application. These products are designed to be swept between pavers and will harden once hydrated. When using these products to fill the gaps between pavers, it is essential to remove any residual dust from the face of the pavers prior to adding water. This can be accomplished with lightly passing a leaf blower over the surface after it has been compacted.
QUIKRETE® PowerLoc® Jointing Sand is graded sand blended with a polymer binder specifically designed for filling joints between interlocking pavers, brick, patio block and concrete slabs. Sakrete PermaSand is produced by a different manufacturer, which makes us unable to comment on its description or level of performance.
Please call or visit your local Home Depot store, or contact the HD.com customer service department at 800-430-3376 between 6 a.m. and 2 a.m. EST - they can either answer your question or transfer you to your local store to answer your specific question.
The average coverage area is 1.5 cu. ft.
QUIKRETE® PowerLoc Jointing Sand may be used to fill concrete slab joints as long as the joints are not wider than ½ inch and water can drain completely through the concrete slab joints without puddling. The surface of the concrete must be clean and dry before placement and be sure to remove any dry material left on the concrete surface prior to the application of water, because this could cause hazing. Also be careful not to wash the QUIKRETE® PowerLoc Jointing Sand out of the joints onto the concrete while applying the water. You may also consider QUIKRETE® Polyurethane Self-Leveling Sealant, which is specifically designed for flowing into horizontal crevices and ideal for general purpose horizontal joint or crack sealing applications, for your application. The ratio of joint/crack width to depth should be 2 to 1, with the depth never less than 1/8” or greater than 1/2”. The use of a QUIKRETE® Backer Rod (No. 6917) is recommended to achieve an appropriate joint/crack depth if the joint/crack is too deep and to prevent 3 sided adhesion. The application area must be clean, dry, frost free, sound and free of any oils, greases, or incompatible sealers, paints, or coatings that may interfere with adhesion. Always wear impervious gloves, such as nitrile, when working with Polyurethanes. Please reference the product packaging or data sheet (https://www.quikrete.com/pdfs/data_sheet-polyurethane%20self-leveling%20sealant%208660-10.pdf ) for complete precautions and application instructions. When making repairs, getting a good color match can be difficult – we always recommend trialing the repair material in a small, inconspicuous area first and waiting 24 hours to ensure that the appearance, including color, is acceptable.

Yes, this is what I used it for. Just be cognizant that your brick will change color due to the film that this leaves behind.
It is not recommended to use the QUIKRETE® Concrete & Masonry Gloss Sealer (No. 8800-06) over the QUIKRETE® Powerloc Jointing Sand. Please call the QUIKRETE® Technical Center directly at 1-800-282-5828 with any further questions.
