In brief: No

Utis are caused by bacteri gaining entry into the urinary tract and multiplying.
Symptoms of UTI and UTI itself may be worse if subject is dehydrated. Dehydration, by and large, should be avoided.

In brief: No

Uti in male is pretty unusual except during infancy.
Therefore, any documented UTI in male warrants investigation. Urinary stasis secondary to congenital abnormality in urinary tract, vesicoureteral reflux, kidney stone, or bladder outlet obstruction such as benign prostate hypertrophy is the main culprit increasing the chance of getting utis.
