1)Yes.If you have a Z68/H67 board,you can install Virtu which helps in video editing and uses the onboard GPU in idle mode(For power saving)
2)Yep,as I said it can be done with Virtu

For all boards (except sandy/ivy bridge Z68/H67 chipsets) the onboard graphics are useless except for when your GPU dies and you still want to boot the PC.
