In brief: Yes
Most infants will breast feed for the first year, and then transition to whole milk in addition to table foods at that time.
However, the world health organization supports breastfeeding in addition to regular table foods until age 2. See their official recommendation at http://www.Who.Int/nutrition/topics/exclusive_breastfeeding/en/.

In brief: Yes
It can be a cultural as well a bounding issue, the baby should have a balance diet accompanied by the milk of your choice.
