Is there any gesture or thing to do when you walk past a nun or religious?
#1
for some reason I walk past many such people in the street,not priests tho. Should I do the sign of the cross? I intuitively think some sort of spiritual thing must be done,but I just dont know what.
I hope I dont have to greet them,as im very shy.

No, you don't have to do anything.
"[I]t is vain to hope to attract souls to God by a bitter zeal."  Pope St. Pius X.

"If anyone deludes himself by thinking he is serving God, when he has not learned to control his tongue, the service he gives is vain.  If he is to offer service pure and unblemished in the sight of God, who is our Father, he must take care of orphans and widows in their need, and keep himself unstained by the world."  James 1:26-27.

Depends. Is it a bald nun?

Greet them with a 'hello' or 'good morning', nod, remove any hat or cap if you have one... it's not an obligation, but basic education is always welcomed.
