Does any given monster have <number of players> x <base health> on multiplayer sessions? Besides having multiple skills and buffs, will hunting with friends take approximately the same time as hunting alone?

Monster health does not scale according to the number of players. However, monsters in Tanzia Port have more health than Monsters fought in the Moga Village. iCEMANnoob did a video to prove this a ways back, as you can see below. He fought a Great Jaggi in the Village (19 hits), along with a Great Jaggi in Tanzia Port solo (24 hits) and in a group of four (23 hits).

No. Monsters do not scale to the number of players hunting. Nothing scales to the number of players involved, which shortens the length of hunts considerably. Anecdotally, I've done 5 minute Gold Rathian and Silver Rathalos runs.
