I have a friend who is in a coma because of a car accident for the last three days. I got this feeling that he might hear us while we are visiting him. Is it possible for a person to hear while he is in coma? Can he remember anything which happened earlier? what are the signs which indicate that he might recover?

Yes. He hears you at some level.

Keep talking with him and interacting with him in ways that are appropriate (e.g. touching his hand and forehead). Keep your energy clear and calm. Coma patients are helped by this because it assists the brain's natural healing process.

The doctors have neurological tests that tell them what can be expected in the way of recovery.
