yes.  For instance, if you use a DataReader, you can then issue a NextResult method, to move to the second set of records.

Yes.

If you use a DataAdapter's Fill method

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfsystemdatacommondataadapterclassfilltopic.asp

It will automatically populate the dataset with all the returned tables defined by the multiple select statements.

Depending on the version of SQL you may not be able to put GO in your stored proc....  You do not need GO between each select :)...

The following stored proc will return multiple tables that are easily accessible from the DataAdapters.fill method...

CREATE PROCEDURE DBO.sp_EmployeeDump  AS

select * from Employee
select * from EmployeeDetail

GO
