In brief: Yes, echo
Echocardiogram is simple and can assess the amount of regurgitation as well as the cause for it in most cases.

In brief: Yes
A murmur (detected with a stethoscope) is characteristic and is the usual way one suspects it.
An echocardiogram is the gold standard. Mild mitral regurgitation will not produce a murmur and an echo will confirm that it is truly insignificant.
