Very much so. Gregorian chants later in the Middle Ages started to become composed by artists who would write pieces for the church and pieces for secular crowds as well. So basically it was the artists that transitioned causing attention to the secular style of their pieces.

No. Gregorian chant was earlier than the medieval period, and is almost exclusively monophonic.

What were the most popular band in the year 1000?

There weren't popular bands or artists at that time. Most music was written in the form of chant and usually for mass. There were many different types of chants based on region, however eventually the standardized chant was the gregorian chant, named after a myth told about Pope gregory. Shortly after 1000 CE, secular music (that is music not written for church) became more popular, especially the music of the troubadours in Southern France.

Secular music in the fourteenth century?

Very little music from the Medieval era is present today. And even less so in the secular variety. The Medieval era was primarily religious, mostly stapled by Gregorian Chant, motets and organa. The little secular music came mostly from french musicians - northern wandering Trouveres and the southern Troubadours. Today, you would be VERY hard pressed to find any Medieval secular music in popular music today. Very little existed back then. And even fewer exist now.
