In brief: Vision change

Your vision may change over time but be unrelated to these activities.

In brief: Yes

If you are constantly looking at a fixed near distance - like a computer your eye muscles may undergo spasm and you may develop induced nearsightedness.
Thats why every 20 minutes of close work look at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds. My 20/20/20 rule. :-).
