Yes

No, unless visualizing audio/sound counts.

Not significantly. The main benefit is that I was able to vaguely learn how music works. I did not get to spend much time playing instruments but instead had to learn musical notes. Out of all the music I have done, I have at best only spent 10 days of schooling with an actual instrument.

On the other hand, unrelated to this, I have played rhythm games and learnt a lot of songs off the top of my head just from exposure. This has had significant benefits outside of it’s context only.
