No to first question, Yes to second question.

WCAG does not address breadcrumbs specifically. You can use the authoring
practice as a best practice (
https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices/#breadcrumb) and it states:

- The *link *to the current page has aria-current
<https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-1.1/#aria-current> set to page. If the
element representing the current page is not a link, aria-current is

But the authoring practice is just a guideline and not a requirement.

If every element in the breadcrumb list were a link, including the current
page, then I would mark it a failure of 4.1.2 if the current page link did
not indicate it were the current page because its state ("value" of "name,
role value") were not announced.
