"Therefore" is acceptable in the example sentence, but "so" is better. Only use "thus" or "hence" if you want to sound pretentious.

It's probably a hyphen. My local newspaper hyphenates street names (e.g. High-street) and though I find it odd, it must've been a reasonably popular custom at one time.
