Sorry for the stupid question.
The answer to both questions is "no". An eInk screen is completely different from both old and new computer screens. It only uses battery when it changes what is on it (like when you turn the page in an ebook), and there's no picture burn.
And for future reference, stupid questions are "should I drink battery acid?", or "should I run blindfolded into traffic?", or "should I tell Inigo Montoya I'm the one who killed his father?". Asking for information about a subject you are not an expert in, is not stupid. It's research.
