If you've both owned the house, and lived in it as your main residence, for at least two of the five years immediately prior to the sale, then you don't have to pay capital gains taxes on the firs $250K of profit - $500K if married filing joint.

As far as I know, I don't see why not, whether you would still owe on the existing mortgage or not shouldnt' matter if you want to leave that debt outstanding while you move on to something else.
