Yes, no features to the release branch.  The only exception is when a
feature patch is approved by 2 more developers with different
affiliation (so that one company cannot push its favorite feature &
break the release for everyone).

Yes, we merge the branches to master from time to time, but no fixed
schedule for that; so there might be a time span when something is fixed
in libreoffice-3-4, but not yet in master.
