The 2 year deadline is to agree the terms of the "divorce"; there is no common view as to whether that includes discussions on free trade or will "simply" concentrate on untangling the various legal relationships, finances, planning, etc.
no. the 2 years is simply the time when which the relevant treaties will automatically cease to apply unless the UK and European Council unanimously decide to extend.

what they discuss or don't discuss is between the UK and the EU.

so unless they agree to extend, they have to discuss everything within these 2 years or let them fall away.
