Yes. It is falling around the sun. Its not falling into the sun because the earth is also moving perpendicular to the force of gravity. Gravity is constantly pulling on it but at different angles so that the by the time the earth is moving in the direction the sun's gravity was pulling on it its now quarter of the way around it and the direction the sun is pulling on the earth is perpendicular that of the original state. Yes this means the astronautics are also falling.

Since the day it formed the moon has been slowly being flung away from the earth by tidal forces. Some day it will be flung away and go into solar orbit by itself, we will no longer have a moon.

Earth has the tendency to maintain the tilt of its axis. The axis changes its direction in space, though, much like a spinning top. This is known as precession.
