No: It is stored in the testes and epididymis in the scrotum. The penis is only for urine when not erect.

Neither: Sperm found in semen is discharged into the urethra at ejaculation. The urethra passes through the penis. An erection is not necessarily associated with ejaculation and sperm is not always found in the urethra.
