If you applied for I-485 AOS as the spouse of a US citizen, I wouldn't be worried. "Unauthorized employment' is never held against spouses of US citizens, as long as you truthfully disclose it.
Spouses of USCs deemed "Immediate Relatives" under the law are never penalized for having engaged in "unauthorized employment". They are forgiven.See question

I have a misdemeanors petty theft and I file for citizenship which my appointment is next month will that affect me.
Will only affect you (negatively) if the petty theft in question occurred less than 5 years ago (or 3 years ago, if filing under the "3 years rule" for being married to a US citizen) and if you are still under any type of probation or limitation of freedom.
Note, however, that USCIS has the unfettered discretion to probe your "good moral character" well beyond the statutory period of either 3 or 5 years.
Make sure to bring to the interview the court issued "final case disposition" document of your case, which you will need to request from the local court.See question

For tax return purposes an F-1 is not considered a "resident" alien, more likely a "non-resident alien". Confirm with an accountant, CPA and/or tax lawyer.See question

A citizen of the US has the right to petition for his/her foreign national spouse. Both spouses must convincingly prove that the marriage is one of love and not entered into with the sole purpose of procuring green card benefits. The age difference will be but one factor, among many others.
Consult with and hopefully hire an experienced lawyer in your area.See question

One can run all kinds of different "what if" scenarios with experienced immigration counsel during a private consultation to that effect.
A US citizen can sponsor his/her foreign national spouse currently present in the USA for a "green card" and the FN spouse can apply for "adjustment of status".
Can also apply for "immigrant visa" at a US consulate abroad.See question
