An emphatic yes to the first, and a meh, not much to speak of to the
second. Each extra pound of muscle only burns about 6 extra calories
a day.

Which is why the only people who can actually benefit from having muscle
mass wrt burning fat are the ones that went from, lets say, 180 pound as a
beginner to at least 230 pounds.

This is also the reason why lifting heavy is a crappy way to lose fat for
women.
