No, the debian/rules make file handles deleting debian package specific
things (debian/tmp/ for instance)

No, the debian changelog can be used to only note things you did for the
debian package. Like if you changed the postinst script, or added a menu
for the debian package. You are more than welcome to keep your program
changes seperate from the debian/changelog.
