    Yes, it will. Moving it to an OU that is outside of the sync scope will also result in deletion of the Azure AD account.

    Yes it will. However, if you let a couple of sync cycles pass, you can go into the AAD portal and restore the user. this will make the user account a cloud account and no longer a synchronized.
