it does, through the GDAL/OGR import:
GRASS wiki page for S-57:

not directly, but I hope that can change by using libS52 (currently under active development):
I'd really love to see this mature into plugins for QGIS, GRASS, and GpsDrive. libS52 is already working at the prototype level with OpenEV, and also used in some real proprietary navigation software. currently QGIS S-57 support needs help (OGR driver), GRASS import is by hand (see wiki page), and GpsDrive has new OpenStreetMap.org rendering support so S-57 support would go nicely with that for the nautical stuff.

no idea, but I don't see any reason why not.
