No!!! Do not tow.
Unless it is a very, very short distance...do not tow. Are there lock out hubs on front? If yes, unlock them, and then remove the rear drive shaft from the rear end. If you can unlock the front hubs, then this will prevent the front differential from turning the front drive shaft to the transfer case. Then you can disconnect the rear drive shaft, and hang it somehow up high against the body so that it will NOT be HIT by the spinning connector yoke on the rear end. Leaving the drive shaft in the transfer case will prevent the loss of oil. BUT......It is critical that it completely clears the spinning yoke on the rear end... or else it will be damaged and may damage other things also. It is also important to remember that as you tow, the vehicle bounces up and down, so there needs to be several inches of clearance between the drive shaft and the connector yoke on the rear end. . If you do not have lock out hubs in the front, then disconnect the front shaft from the front end and hang it also. Use PB Blaster or similar oil to ease the process. If towing on a tow dolly, then you need to only remove the rear shaft. Be careful and make sure that whatever you use to hang the shaft is sturdy.

Yes but I would use a dolly to do it. The problem is the possibility of the car dropping into gear. Also it is not recommended that you tow a Front wheel drive vehicle with the wheels on the ground. You could damage the transmission. U-Haul and a Number of other rental locations rent a Wheel hopper dolly. This puts the 2 front wheels on the dolly to be towed. It is relatively cheap and will save you damage to the vehicle.

You can as others do although it is not recommended by mechanics like us. The transmission does tend to get hot and the pump is not circulating the trans fluid causing leaks later on prematurely
