Pretty much and it's hard not to put on too much so don't over do it.

it depends. For "regular" maintenance, yes. If you were completely overhauling, you would grease the headet, hubs, bottom bracket if it's not a cartridge, and all fasteners. the chain would need some sort of chain lube.

I occasionally lube the pivot points on my brakes, derailers and levers, but I only ride old bikes with lots of road buildup.
