Nope.  You don't get a USA passport until you are a citizen.   You should renew asap 


YMMV

Nothing to confuse. Your UK passport+ GC is using when you travel abroad. If it almost expired, you can renew your UK passport before travel. You will not get a US passport until you become US citizens by naturalization. You can apply for US citizenship after 3 year of GC holder ( still married to US Citizen), or 5 year as standard.

No you apply for a renewal passport of your country of citizenship. You will only be able to apply for US Naturalization (Citizenship) after three years of your first GC approval and that's provided you are still married to your USC. Otherwise the wait is 5 years.
