In brief: Yes

In an adult, tachycardia is defined as a heart rate above 100.
Fever can certainly increase your heart rate (as can many other things).

In brief: Yes

Generally when you have a fever your heart rate increases, drink plenty of fluids to keep hydrated and get plenty of bed rest, if you are still concern see your doctor.
