Yes, you can even crossfire different cards in the same family (4870, 4850, 4890, 4860, 4830) though you want to use the same card or at least very close in performance.

Yes you can. The only thing to keep in mind is that if you have two cards with different RAM sizes, the drivers will use the lowest amount in common. For example, if you have a 512mb card and a 1GB card, the drivers will treat both cards like they are 512MB basically leaving half the RAM in the 1GB card unused.
