In brief: Fovea is Central

The macula is the central part of the retina that gives us our ability to read and see detail.
The very center region of the macula is called the fovea. It is responsible for our most acute vision. If it is injured or damaged we usually cannot read letters and images become distorted or "blocked." the fovea is the central retina, so yes it is connected.

In brief: Not really

The fovea is separate from the retina .
Each carry about 50% input from he eye to the brain.
