1) China is officially unsupported for Kindle. Therefore, no Kindle Store for China-based book purchases. Amazon dropped the $1.99 overseas surcharge for US-based customers downloading books via Whispernet, but periodicals are still charged extra.
2) Yes, and yes. This is basically the only way to get your books if you want to buy them via Amazon. I also advise downloading and transferring everything via computer to avoid having Amazon send you a note asking for proof of current US residence as they have for other overseas customers.
Hope this helps, and welcome to MobileRead!
