In brief: Yes

Experimental studies have shown that sleep deprivation can cause hypertension (HTN) & increases in inflammatory markers associated with heart disease.
Epidemiological studies show relationship between sleep duration & htn, heart disease, and even all-cause mortality rates.

In brief: Yes

There is significant evidence that shows chronic sleep deprivation to be as bad as acute sleep deprivation (not sleeping or sleeping very little for several days in a row).
