1) It depends. The machine you are connecting to will see your connection as the IP of the proxy. From there it would depend on how the proxy handles your connection. If the proxy logs the IP you connect with and what you request through it, no.

2) Probably not. Hosting a public proxy is probably prohibited in your TOS with your service provider, possibly in more generic terms though. Other questions are "can my bandwidth handle 100 requests? 1000?" and "can my hardware/OS handle those requests?" Nobody is going to voluntarily use a slow proxy that crashes a lot.
