Apache and Tomcat Clustering

I am trying to set up a cluster of Tomcat servers where they replicate session btwn the tomcat servers. My questions are:

1) For failover, if I am using apache/mod_jk as a load balancer, will it automatically detect if one of the members in the cluster is down and not route requests to it?

2) Are there any issues assoicated with SSL and apache as the load balancer?

Thanks,
Jim
