Generally, yes, but it would depend somewhat on the case.

Nope, the S7 has it integrated into the device. When I had the S6, it worked through thinner cases bit not thicker ones. Honestly the only way you'll be able to know is by testing it out.

I have a pretty thick case on my S6 Edge and it was a bit fussy.  A little tip though, replace the cord from the wall plug to the charger with the shortest, thickest cord you can find.  It will reduce the resistance in the cable to the charger.  Now with my case on, I can toss my phone on way off center, crooked, whatever, and it works flawlessly.
