A: Most likely, no. The conditions are listed on your actual order, but most orders will state that you must stay away from the individual's home, at the very least. If you are found to be in violation of the order, you can be arrested and charged with a crime.

A: If there is an order of protection, ordering you to stay away from a particular person, you should not go in front of that protected-person's house. That may be considered a violation of the order of protection.
