Do pokemon in the Daycare gain EVs?

No, they only gain experience points, and level up. Be carefull, if you leave them in there too long, they will learn moves by them selves and delete the ones they know.

Nope. EVs come from vitamins, wings, and battling (with bonuses from Pokerus and/or EV training held items). Leveling up by other means (Rare Candy, day care for example) does not affect EVs.

But it's not too bad in Black/White because you can use TM's infinitely, and the game is full of Heart Scales everywhere.

Yeah you only have to watch out for egg moves being deleted.

This x a lot. I actually go back in every few levels if I'm breeding for egg move + nature + IV, take out my male, and reposition the egg move to the bottom of his list so it lasts longer. I will add this though - the movelist is not recalculated until the pokemon comes out of the day care, so any eggs will be generated with the moves the father had when deposited, even if the moves are long gone when you take him out.

I've found that as long as you don't try to take out the male from the day care, the egg moves will continue to spread no matter the level.
