No. It's one of Origin's biggest shortcomings compared to Steam.

You can save the installers and it goes to the game directory, I think. After downloading though, I believe you're out of luck.

Kinda-sorta. When I upgraded from XP to 7 on my desktop I stuck Burnout Paradise and Crysis 2 on my external drive, along with all the stuff I wanted on steam. When I went to reinstall everything, Origin detected my Crysis 2 files and just slapped what it needed to into my registry. If I want to play Burnout Paradise, though, I'm gonna have to redownload.

Steam sales. There are at least 9 every week, including mid week madness and weekend deals.
