In brief: No

If it happens infrequently it is unlikely to be a concern.
However, if it is persistent or becoming more frequent, it can be a sign of reflux, breathing or heart problems.

In brief: No

The most common cause of vomiting after coughing is gastroesophageal reflux.
A persistent severe cough with vomiting after the cough could be a sign of whooping cough, a very dangerous illness especially in infants.
