As for the first question: I expect most of the time, it is usually stated in the specs.
Never presume anything if it is really important to you ask (the supplier/manufacturer/both) or stay away.

As for the second question: Don't know I guess it would become a lot more complicated as their is no direct input for the screen and you would have to use a usb line or ethernet, software ect. I guess it would be possible with enough effort.

If all else fails: Read The Manual

check out IBM Thinkpads (T40 is awesome), though many others can too. i use two monitors at work from my notebook (no docking station needed) for developing software, very nice.
