As an example, I want to write the decimal number 3.78 Is it common to write it as 三.七八 with Kanji? What about 点? Is 三点七八 being used?

First note that, when the text is written horizontally, kanji numerals won't be used normally.

Regardless of text directions, it seems the norm is to use ・(なかぐろ) .

This page quotes 「記者ハンドブック」(第8版:1997年共同通信社刊)

2.数字は、特別の場合を除いて、洋数字を使う。

 (1)数字のケタは、千、百万、十億で区切り、その符号として「,」を使う(小数点の「・」を使うのは間違い。)

So 3.78 will be written 三・七八.
