In brief: Unlikely
Burns cause a break in the skin which leads to massive fluid losses.
Unless lymphedema was present before the burn, it is unlikely to have occured due to the burn. Studies which have looked for an association have failed to find one.

In brief: Probably not
Although it isn't likely, virtually any significant injury can result in lymphedema.
If the burn was major, lymphedema could result. If it wasn't a major burn then the chances of developing lymphedema from that would be nil.
