Yes and no. The exe is an installer, taking care of copying the files to
the "Program Files" folder, optionally creating start menu entries,
associating .tex files with TeXworks, etc.
The zip just contains the program (which still needs to be configured
for portable usage).

Yes, as documented in the manual - see Paul's message.

Preferences are saved in the registry by default, but can be saved to an
arbitrary file instead (using the portable setup).
Other resources are by default stored in the user's directory, but those
two can be relocated by the portable setup.
