In brief: Yes

Particularly during the respiratory phase of the illness the patient coughing will spew virus into the air and you can inhale the varicella-zoster virus which causes chickenpox and become infected.

In brief: Viral contact

The virus is spread by direct contact.
Droplet spread if coughing or sneezing, nasal discharge or cough with sputum, scabs from sores can spread the virus.
