The engine is getting more fuel than your ingnition system can light causing raw fuel to be dumped into the exhaust.I would suggest you have a mechanic check for fuel injectors staying open,if that is not the problem have an analysis done on your ignition system to check primarily your spark.Make sure you get your vehicle checked as soon as possible,this is extremly dangerous.

No. A bad head gasket would cause water to come out the tailpipe. You will see white smoke. Leaky rings would cause oil to come out the tailpipe. You will see blue smoke.

no but it may cause it to stall if exhaust is blocked

If you have sparks coming out of this pipe call a licensed electrician or your local building inspector right away.
