Whether its you or someone you know to be an active, pious protestant - do you / they pray it?

No, they don't pray to Mary.

I don't know of any Protestants that pray to any saint, tbh. It might be more widespread in the Catholic-leaning Anglicans, but I'm not Anglican, so I wouldn't know.

Noone in my church (Evangelical) does, at the very least.

Rosary beats are used for prayers outside Rosary.
Chaplets of the Holy Spirit uses 7 sets of 3 beats. I have to get one of those.

I mean, they're really just japa beads. I wouldn't personally pray to Mary with them, but I can see the draw of using them.

From my experience, Protestants consider such things as praying to icons or false idols.

Also I've never understood why someone would bother praying to a saint if God is able to receive prayers perfectly fine himself.

Ha, No. Protestants are too busy attacking gays, wanting to cut welfare to say that prayer.
If Judeo-Christian God exists, he creates and destroys indiscriminately. He loves and hates all. That's pretty badass
