Yes. We can selectively enable auditing on one or more folder. When auditing is enabled, all files and folders within the nominated folder(s), including any new folders that you create within it/them, are automatically audited.

This isn't enabled by default, but it can be switched on if required.
No, the solution will record who changed the file, and when, but not what the change was.
