Wow. Good questions.
1. If your beer has equalized to the set pressure, yes, provided there are no leaks in the system.
2. Difficult to answer for me, but that sounds rather excessive. Check your system for leaks. Normally you would carbonate at 2.5 volumes, so a 5 lb bottle should do 2 kegs hardly showing it. Good luck...
