  1. No, that would certainly be odd. Hardly a necessity.
  2. Considering how often anti-virus software needs to be updated, or at least have its signature files updated, this wouldn't be a good idea!

    If you want to protect the files on the USB drive from virii, only plug it into known good machines. If you want to boot off the USB drive and run anti-virus on a flaky system, it's almost not worth the trouble, since any one that you build will be out-of-date a few days later.
