1. Basically, yes. The BMS will absolutely prevent overcharging, but if you run the battery down to zero so that the car stops moving, but then let it sit for a bit before trying to drive again, it will go some small additional distance. If you do this several times and then let it sit at that very depleted state for a long time, like a week or more, you could brick your main battery.

2. Maximum charging speed is around 3.5 kW for a US car. European smarts had a 22 kW chargingn option that was never available in the US.
