In brief: Yes but

Anxiety can cause "skipped" beats, but it would be important to see a physician just to be sure that there's no other cause of irregular heart rhythm.

In brief: Yes

That can be a common cause of skipped heart beats, and generally, they are of no concern unless the person has structural heart disease or significantly decreased blood flow to the heart muscle from arterial blockage.
