Answer to both questions is essentially the same - the same GnuCash
file can be used to store financial data over a period of time  - mine
is the same since about 2007 when I started using GnuCash seriously.
What is usually done is to generate reports covering specific periods
of time such as a month or a year, when required. Only situation where
you would need to carry over th ebalance in an account to the next
month is if you intend to use a fresh file for each month. In that
case consider the "close book:" option under tools, which is really
intended for starting a new file at the end of a financial year.

I do not know about this one.
