1. Add punctuation to your stopword list?
2. In general not really.  You can create separate full-text indexes on each field then search first one field then another and sort the rows like that, but otherwise I don't know of a built-in way to do it.  MySql returns full-text rows based on it's relavence estimation and not what field contained the data for that row.
