In brief: Yes

Many oral surgeons administer nitrous oxide with local anesthesia for procedures.
The nitrous oxide may help alleviate some of the anxiety associated with the procedure and make the injections as well as the actual surgery a more pleasant procedure.

In brief: Varies

It is not unusual at all for nitrous to be administered along with local anesthesia.
The nitrous is commonly used with many procedures of dentistry to try to relax and calm the patient. Some providers choose to use it and others not as much. It commonly is a case by case, provider by provider decision.
