Yes you can only have one NIC, make sure to update all the settings accordingly.
You can also create an alias (eth0:0) or a new ip on the interface (ip addr add XXXX/Y dev eth0)

It depends on what you are trying yo achieve, but if you have an extra interface, it won't need to access to the internet, eth0 would be good for that

Nope, totally up to you. I usually have three interfaces : eth0 for internet acces, eth1 for internal network and eth3 for rescue/admin access

sure :)
