For problem #1 I would suspect a bad connection, it is a black wire I believe where it conencts to your CDI box, clean that connection on that wire and put it back together.
For problem #2 check your air filter, it probably needs replacing, not enough air and too much gas, a bad filter will end up fouling the plug if the motor cannot breathe.

I wrote all of this below and figured I'd come back up here and clearify...I think it sounds most like a carb issue...but I'm leaving everything else just so you have other things to check.
Sounds like it might be running over rich. Check your plugs to make sure one isn't fouled completely out. If they look good, check and make sure they are firing (you can pull one at a time and touch the threads to the outside of the engine block to ground it and crank it over...you should see it spark. If they are firing, check your filters (a blocked air filter can cause insufficient air flow and it would toss out until it could pull enough air in). Has the bike been sitting for a season or two with the same gas? If so, get rid of the gas in the tank...it's most likely turpentine now and would be better as a paint stripper then a combustion agent (yes...gas does spoil and depending on how well your tank is sealed...it can happen faster than that). Could also have some water in your tank. So if its been sitting, honestly longer than a month, I'd get rid of that the gas in the tank. From there check the carbs. You could have a float valve sticking or a bent needle. Last but not least...if you've done any major work to the engine...check your points or have someone check them for you. You could be off by just a degree or two and it will muck up everything. Hope this helps in some way and best of luck!
