1.

a. When you need to provide name resolution for multiple-disjointed name spaces.
b. When you need to set alternate Replication scopes, or Secondary servers / Name Servers for sub-domains (Delegation in both cases)

2.

If you mean an organisations public DNS name, then no, this isn't a problem. Active Directory requires a forward lookup zone for its own DNS domain name.

1.

a. Normally happens in public hosting scenarios:

Forward Lookup Zones for:

domainname1.com
domainname2.com
etc

b.

See the picture below.

2.

The DNS domain should not (can not) be different from the AD Domain Name.
