In brief: Heart rate
Slow and fast heart rates can be seen a healthy baby.
Whether the heartrate is abnormally fast or slow it is best to ask your doctor

In brief: Yes
In a fetus, the heart will speed up with activity or stimulation and then slow back down just like your pulse does.
These are normal changes and on a monitor strip are good indicators of fetal well being depending on the pattern and how high and low the rate actually is.
