Oh yeah,2nd question.
I straighten the strings while pulling and twice again after.
Once on the machine and again while holding the racquet up to a known horizontal, like a doorframe.
It's also important IMO to remember to straighten the mains which get bowed inwards during stringing.
They can give you the illusion of straight when they really are not.
This may seem a bit OCD, but I often use stencils and I want to make sure the strings are square before applying the ink.
