In brief: Yes
The skin of the penis is just like skin elsewhere on the body.
Excessive / continuous friction will cause an abrasion.

In brief: Yes
It will depend on how and how often you are masturbating.
Skin is skin and friction can separate the top layer of skin from the base layers and a blister can form. To prevent this from happening, use a good lubricant (there are many made specifically for sexual practices) and try to limited use of materials (can lubricate them--ie cloth, plastic and others) and try to cut back on your activity;.
