It's called "top cropping" and it's a very good way to get healthy viable yeast.

Just sanitize your spoon and scoop away. It shouldnt take too much yeast to ferment the next 10 gallons. I assume...

Beer line, does it carbonate?

Random q, couldn't find anything on the interwebs: does the beer in the beer lines carbonate like the rest of the keg? If I take an early sample from the keg, is the beer in the line at the same carb...

I wouldn't open it up every time to rouse it. If fermentation is slow, you want not fill the headspace and risk oxygenation issues.
