Yes just omit it.

No, both rules must be target="pattern" (but in the correct order), 
because "Monospace" is usually only a virtual font name that never 
occurs in fontconfig's cache, thus is invalid after the matching stage.

But you still have to make sure that this is the actual name the 
application uses. Should be fine for "Monospace" though.
