Most often, Shimano shifters need shimano derailleurs, and Sram shifters need Sram derailleurs, to work well. Mixing usually doesnt work as well.

No. The cassettes/chains are interchangeable. The shifter must match the derailleur for the above listed components.

Sram/Shimano have 2 different cable ratios.
