In brief: Pregnancy timimg

Technically if you are not ovulating you will not get pregnant, but in someone who is having cyclical ovulation's, it can be hard to figure out the timing of when the egg is released into the uterus.

In brief: Unlikely

No. You can only get pregnant when sperm touches an ovulated egg.
Sperm can live for a few days in a uterus so as long as you are not having unprotected sex a few days before or after you ovulate, it is unlikely to get pregnant.
