Can you use hubs that have originally been posted on Hubpages on other sites?
No! The hubs would later get flagged as 'Duplicate Content' on hubpages since they would then be published in multiple places online.
You would need to completely rewrite the hub that your posting elsewhere so that it's original or expect to get flagged by hubpages once its discovers the same version on other web pages.
If it's your own hub you can, but you might be penalized for it.
You may publish anything that is your own work, regardless of whether it appears elsewhere on the internet. As has already been explained, it will be penalized with a lower HubScore. Also, duplicated content will not be allowed if it accompanies promotional links. For further clarification on these rules, please see: http://hubpages.com/hub/overly-promotional
The clever way to do that is to post just the first paragraph and an image, then a "read more" which leads back to the original Hub.
Or even better, write a new "taster" paragraph and then link it back to the original.
That will give you content on your blog, plus a backlink for your Hub.
Well it's true that the Hub will get listed for being 'duplicate content' - the consequence of this is that the Hubscore is lower and therefore may not be as visible on Google or Hubpages as it could be if it was only on Hubpages.
The Hub will not get deleted or 'turned off'....
Yeah if you do it over the top Hubpages will lower your hubscore! some sites have worse discipline for doing it though..such as snipsly
You should use your blog or website to link back to your hub and drive traffic. That's perfectly allowed and in fact encouraged.
I wouldn't suggest it, but it can be done. What everyone else said is absolutely right, it's considered duplicate content and may get flagged. Besides that, google also has a negative view on it as well.
Still, you can do things the smart way. I keep a separate blog to drive traffic here, and it seems to work pretty well. I'll post the first paragraph or two of my article, and then some miscellaneous ramblings to go along with it, and make sure that it links back to here. The benefit of that is that I get a lot of clicks from the blog account, and then get more from here.

Are you the personality type who just can't wait to catch someone who is breaking a hub rule? Or, are you more likely to ignore the rule breaking? I think the answer to this question lies in the intent of the real...
