In brief: Muscle not dead

The nuclear picture of the heart shows a hole in the muscle during exercise (stress) but not at rest.
The muscle is alive and not permanently damaged. A bypass or stent could prevent the damage from becoming permanent.

In brief: Depends

Reversible ischemia means that the issues caused by lack of blood flow can be resolved by repairing the problem. The symptoms would depend on the location of the ischemia.
