  1. I can only speak to the US, Canada and Mexico, but pilots are definitely requested to squawk Mode C on taxiways. No one uses "alt off" here...
  2. Not if you are flying a precision approach with automatic following of the vertical descent guidance. So, when flying an ILS, LPV or LNAV/VNAV approach, your ALT SEL (=selected altitude) should be disregarded... In a 737 and other Boeing aircraft I'm familiar with, on an LNAV/VNAV approach the aircraft will definitely capture an MCP altitude. Operators have different procedures to deal with this; at my outfit we set the MCP altitude to field elevation, and if a go around happens the callouts are "TOGA, Flaps 15, positive rate, gear up, SET missed approach altitude" etc.
