In brief: Yes

Hepatitis b (and c) are blood borne diseases that can be spread by small cuts-which a razor could do.
Sex is also a way to transmit these diseases, b for sure and i suspect c.

In brief: Unlikely, but yes

Hepatitis b and c are spread by blood (hiv too).
If roommate has hep, nicked self with razor, didn't clean it, you used it, got nicked, and got exposed to blood from the razor, then yes, it could happen. Possible, but not likely.
