1. Yes
2. It's up to you. Usually via URLConnections and ObjectStreams (if sending objects). Depends on what kind of data you're sending back and forth. Could also use HTTP or RMI.

For the Applet to Servlet communication, check out Jason Hunter's "Java Servlet Programming" Chapter 10. You can get the source code here: http://www.servlets.com/jsp/examples/ch10/index.html
This example uses a HttpMessage object written by Hunter. You can download any helper classes from the Hunter's main page http://www.servlets.com

You can also look at the ObjectServlet example in the JavaRanch common package

For the Applet and Servlet Communication, take a look at this link: http://www.j-nine.com/pubs/applet2servlet/
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
