I believe so.

Neither - they act like a logical OR.  If a user has a right, through either an individual right or a group right, then they will have that right.  I basically avoid using individual user rights altogether; on anything beyond a very small setup it becomes unmanageable.  I always create an admincc group for each queue, for example, and give users rights to that queue by changing their group membership.
