1 hour battery life is perfectly normal for a gaming laptop. Not much you can do, really.

There isn't much you can do: a gaming laptop's wattage under full load requires a dedicated power source to sustain the draw.

Gaming on a laptop is already more power efficient than gaming on a PS3 linked to a backup UPS during a blackout: it would last minutes, maybe up to an hour depending on the UPS model, before shutdown.

Best thing is to put into power saver mode, reduce brightness, turn off bluetooth/wifi, etc.
