Generally you would only say 'her sister' if there is only one sister. Otherwise you would say 'the sister' to specify one of multiple. "The sister that worked here."

Yes. Both the possessive pronoun and the definite article are correct. But I suggest that instead of 'The/Her'you should use 'The one' as it naturally follows the question.

For instance,

A: Her sister is a good friend of mine.

B: Which one?

A: The one who worked here years ago.
