Yes you can run the computer with one stick of ram. Whay in the world you'd want to do that however, is beyond me.

Yes and it will work fine
The Dual Channel Kits are made so you have matched pair of memory sticks with the same timings & speed.
no reason you can't split them up and run each in a different PC.
