If you are just starting out, then JSF would seem the better choice. Personally, I think it is cleaner and more coherent than Struts, and being an "official" Sun standard, it will be around for a while.

1) There is an experimental client-side GUI builder in Eclipse. But it is not really ready for prime time.
2) I am not aware of a free Eclipse plugin for visual JSF editing. But Exadel's product is based on Eclipse.
