No if you are married less than 2 years at the time your I-485 is approved then you will get a 2 year conditional green card and will need to file the I-751 jointly (or by yourself with a waiver) within the 90 days period before it expires.

No. Unless you will be married for at least 2 years on the day you appear for your scheduled I-485 (green card) interview at USCIS, all you will get is a temporary green card valid for only 2 years from date of issuance. If that will be the case, you will then have to file the application to "remove" the conditions on your temporary GC, the soonest 3 months before its expiration date. You will be able to "jointly" file together with your USC spouse, OR on your own, if you will be divorced by that time.
