In brief: Small

Very very unlikely the tooth will infect your nose.

In brief: Depends

Depends on the length of the root as well as the angular ion of the root.
In addition if there is a concern for the spreading of an infection, then the longer the infection is present the more the likelihood there will be damage to the surrounding bone.
