Stopping birth control changes your hormone level, that's why the tender breasts. Unless you have had unprotected sex and are prego.

Answer

Tender swollen breasts are not usually a symptom seen with stopping the pill.As stated above, it is a symptom of pregnancy however. After not ovulating due to being on the pill, it is not uncommon for women to ovulate soon after stopping the pill, so if you are having unprotected sex, get a pregnancy test.

Answer

Yes this does sometimes occur after stopping BCP. If your period doesn't arrive in 4 weeks, perform a HPT.
