In brief: Depends

Depends what kind of fracture you have and how long you have been injured.
Posterior fractures may have a greater risk of puncturing a lung. Check with your doc!

In brief: Yes

Yes you can, but i'd avoid any really strenuous exercise for about a month after the fracture.
Also i'd avoid any contact sports for 4-6 weeks.
