How many ram do I need on server to run bitcoind properly? Is swap sufficient to replace it?

not much If I recall it's ~150mb(or used to be ages ago) and can run on a raspberry pi, What kind of system are you setting it up on?
How time flies, I wouldn't set it up with less than 2gb of memory the way things are currently.

it run just fine on 512 mb with swap or 1 gb without swap. (tested on ubuntu server on VMWare)

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

If your spilling over into your swap, the whole machine will grind to snail pace.

keep in mind that as the bitcoind instance runs longer, the ram usage will increase. the figures I gave were for 24 hours.

Hmmm. Does online wallets provide same features as bitcoind? (especially if it's possible to check if incoming payment to unique adress has arrived -> so I could build it into automatic system in my site)

Don't use online wallets for business sites. You are just asking to get hacked. I would never run business that accepts bitcoin thru an online wallet.

Why do you think so? How could that be more hackable in comparison to local bitcoind?

If you run a bitcoind property it can be incredibly difficult to hack and empty all your coins. A web wallet all you need is a username and password. If you get into the web site it can be extremely easy to find those things. With a bitcoind you can set a lot of parameters both in the bitcoind and OS itself to protect it. I am not going to go into detail because I don't have time to write it all out. If you want to pay me I can it setup and make it very difficult to be hacked.

Not sure what you meant there. If an attacker is able to hack into a server and look at your source code or config files to get the password to your web wallet, why would he or she not be able to get into bitcoind and steal your coins?

Cause you would have an IDS and you have bitcoind set to the server ip which gives you more time, to pull it offline, where a web wallet, they can steal the coins quicker. Hence why I said more difficult to steal coins and not impossible to steal coins. Which you are confused with if you read your question.
