In the NFL, if the offense scores a touchdown, the team is credited with a first down. Check any NFL game's play-by-play on and count all of the first downs.

Yes. Not only does the clock stop for touchdowns, but for any score.

Touchdown = 6 points Point after touchdown (PAT) kick = 1 point Point after touchdown (PAT) run = 2 point Fieldgoal = 3 points Safety = 2 points (though this is rare occurence)

Only if it relates to a first down or touchdown.

Scoring a field goal in American football cannot be done in conjunction with a touchdown. They are two independent ways of scoring.

In Canadian football, they may be scored under circumstances not related to a touchdown.
