Yes, NJ is part of an agreement with other states whereby they honor other states' violations. NJ can suspend you because you are suspended in another state, has nothing to do with your driving record here. Settle the issue in NY.

Yes. Your license can be suspended for non-payment of violations in another state. Pay the ticket.
You can appeal the suspension in NJ. But NJ is a member of that compact that suspends for unpaid fines in other States. NY always takes its time reporting but 14 years is a new one. Maybe it is cheaper to just pay NY, how much can it be. Why hassle the hassle. Or try that appeal.
Yes, you can. Pay the ticket; waiting will only make things more difficult to resolve.
