A: No, you should be able to renew, online. However, it may take a while for the biometrics and new card to come in the mail. You are obligated to update the card, but you are still considered a lawful permanent resident. It is best to renew before the card expires, because you can be disadvantaged, if you need to apply for a new job. Good luck.

A: No problems, but you need to get on it. You'll need to keep your PR status in shape as you are looking ahead to citizenship. BTW, once you file the I-90 to renew your PR, you will receive an I-797 receipt notice. You can typically use the I-797 as proof, to renew state benefits like driver's license.
