I am by no means an expert on licensing, but to the best of my knowledge:

You can't do anything. If you distribute modifications - in any form - source code must be made available, under the same license. That's kind of the thing with the GPL licenses - the source can't become proprietary.

If you are asking your offsite developers for a fee, you are possibly already in violation of the license. You can only charge people for support, documentation or distribution. I am not entirely sure wether what you are doing would qualify as distribution.

What is allowed under the GPL is making modifications for personal use and keeping them to yourself. The clause you're quoting from GPLv3 means that you can also have someone else make modifications - as long as you are the only one using them. Otherwise you would have to make the source available to the public.

Again: I am not a lawyer. You should talk to one.
