In brief: Dislocation

Yes this condition can happen.
The term for this is a subluxation. If it continues you need an evaluation by an orthopedic surgeon.

In brief: Yes

This is termed a subluxation or a dislocation with spontaneous reduction.
These usually happen in patients with multidirectional instability, but can happen in other types of shoulder instability.
