Thermal pads

Hello,

I have some questions about thermal pads.
Do thermal pads dry out (when) ?
Do I have to replace them when taking of the heatsink of the graphics card?
Which thermal pads are good?
Can I also use thermal paste on the chip in the picture (the one with the green thermal pad)?
Please check following picture, so that you know what I mean.
