We are also starting our business as Odoo SAAS provider, focused on
small local vendors and businesses. The coverage of business processes
Odoo does support out of the box is amazing, also the functional depth.
Together with the numerous customization possibilities without even
touching the code is impressive. So, as already said, before starting to
develop code for functionalities already existing, do thoroughly study
what Odoo already offers.
We also do proudly support Odoo's branding (see or for example), I have even
written a small module to adapt to this way.

Yes, if you install your customers as separate databases, you can
individually install all modules suiting the particular customer's
needs. To direct web requests to the proper database, use the db_filter
option (if using it in the .conf file, it is dbfilter), which allows to
automatically extract the database name from the subdomain.
