Thanking in anticipation ...
But to answer your question, no you do not have to actually upload a separate site to create a subdomain. You can use can simply map a subdomain to a pre-exisiting sub directory.
or not - depends on a lot of things.
Using canonicals [google.com] is not generally bad.
Far away from any immediate pr advantage though.

i mean if my site is widgets.com hosted on a particular server say X now i want to have a subdomain hello.widgets.com ...
now is it necessary to upload the sub-domain also on the X server to get PR Advantage ....
Beacuse i think when we do that your pages are crawled faster and also u get the PR soon....
rather than having on a different server and mapping it to the widgets.com IP ....
I hope i am clear what i wanna say :)
NO PR ADVANTAGE!
If you don't get links to the subdomain, the site will never get listed.
If you get links to it, it's the same like setting up a site widgets.com and one example.com.

That's irelevant - a dns entry is a dns entry - wether it's for a subdomain or for a new top domain.
