Provided one is Primary and the other is Secondary, yes. You can use Zone Transfers to get a secondary copy of the zone on the remote server.

Yes, Chris-Dent already provided a very simple solution. You can also create Stub Zones or create conditional forwarding for each other if Name Resolution is the only concern.

Active Directory Integrated is Primary. Each DNS Server within the domain holds a Primary version Zone, with the data replicated through Active Directory.

For the remote domain you can either create a Secondary zone, use Stub Zones or use Conditional Forwarders.

Yes, Active Directory Zones are same as Primary Zones. You can create Secondary Zones for the same on each other.

Follow the steps within to create Stub Zones :
