If the form questions are numbered, you could label the
items in this group such as 6a, 6b, 6c to indicate
they must be answered together.

I wouldn't put the questions on a separate web page. To
show them as required, once one is answered, perhaps use
JavaScript to apply to the set whatever visual cue you're
already using to show required fields. Users could then
unanswer the one answered question if they decide not to
answer all three.
