Is it possible to block USB access on Window 7 / 8 ? Can I deploy it under Window 2003 R2 GPO ?

Yes,
1. Computer Configuration-->Policies-->Administrative Templates-->System-->Removable Storage Access
    User Configuration-->Policies-->Administrative Templates-->System-->Removable Storage Access

It specify read and write permission on all kinds of removable storage device.

2. Computer Configuration-->Policies-->Administrative Templates-->System-->Device Installation-->Device Installation Restrictions

presumably you're just talking about storage devices, not mice, keyboards, printers, other peripherals...
