when your port is not switchport it will act as router's port (as if it is a single port within vlan with ip address applied to vlan).
This is a unique cisco feature, for other vendors you should use vlan with ip address bound to a single port.

there is no much benefits. if you want to exchange routes between router and switch, you should launch routing protocols between them (like rip or ospf)

hm, but your switch is L2, so there is no routing protocols available.
so don't need no switchported interfaces on 2960
