typically, it is not a good idea. the transmission pump only runs if the engine is turning. towing it would mean that some of the transmission gear train is spinning, but without proper lubrication. This will burn up the transmission over time. aftermarket kits are available for some models to resolve this issue, but i'm not too familiar with them.

That makes sense. The oil pump for the transfer case runs from the driveshaft, and the one for the trans runs from the engine. If you put the trans in neutral, then parts of it may be turning without lubrication.
Other things to watch on those trucks:
The electrical power goes through a splice near the battery and gets corroded.
Transmission lines tend to rust out near the tranny in salt country.

Yes it can. So long as the front wheels are perfectly straight and secured in this position and I don't mean secured with the steering lock as that will most likely break when your car hits a pot hole. Also, by towing with all wheels, you're adding extra mileage onto your car because the speed sensor is built into the front wheels (this amount will be considered negligible).
