1.  no there is no option to diable that alert.  Same complaint when using 3rd party backup
2.  Hopefuly, you are only disabling it briefly for testing or troubleshooting ..bad idea and unsupported to leave that way

IF you want to have no firewall, but not get warned about it I have found the easiest way is to create 2 inbound rules and 2 outbound rules (4 rules total) using the Advanced Firewall Console (Administrative tools)

1. Inbound - TCP - All Ports - Allow
2.  Inbound - UDP - All Ports - Allow
3.  Outbound - TCP - All Ports - Allow
3.  Outbound - UDP - All Ports - Allow

With these rules in place the firewall is "effectively disabled" and the SBS Security Centre will still have a green tick
