No. He is an elected official. However, modern presidents have often treated the veep as a sort of honorary cabinet member. He may be seen in the official portrait of the cabinet and can be sent to represent the President at various state functions or campaign events.

YES. "The Cabinet includes the Vice President and the heads of 15 executive departments - the Secretaries of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs, as well as the Attorney General."

From a technical, legal standpoint, no. The Vice President is not a member of the Cabinet.

However, most Cabinet meetings are attended by the V.P. if available, and the V.P. will stand-in for the President in any Cabinet meeting where the President is unavailable.
