In brief: Should not

To the contrary, the root canal should relieve the pain! proper anesthesia should prevent pain during the procedure!

In brief: Depends

That would be determined by the state of the abscess and infection.
Make a consultation appointment to discuss prior to the procedure.

In brief: Sometimes

Sometimes it's hard to get an abscessed tooth numb.
Your dentist may elect to treat with antibiotics to settle the tooth down first.
