In brief: No

I take it that you are simply opening a can and transfer it to a bottle and feeding it.
I don't see anything wrong with it, if the baby is drinking well. Warming the milk is preferable for a young newborn baby because it simulates temperature of breast milk, but certainly it does not sterilize the milk.

Remember formula should only be left out at room temperature for an hour and then be refrigerated so that no bacteria will grow in it.

In brief: Not sure

Storage instructions are usually provided on the bottle near the nutrition breakdown table.
I cannot tell you if you can or not, since I am not familiar with manufacturer storage guidelines.
