Q1 - No, it it will not execute the Javascript snippet from Google Analytics hence it isn't registered.

Q2 - This depends on how you have configured Google Analytics. You can configure your snippet on the setup of the profile to include subdomains (such as xys.domain.com) or to treat them as a separate site. Note you would have to setup another profile then to track xyz.domain.com explicitly.
