Does the "no sentence starts with and" rule, still apply to dialogue?

heck no. A good way to use "and" to begin a sentence in dialogue might be,
"And besides," she said wiping the tears from my face, "I love you too."
And, there is no hard fast rule that says you can begin a regular sentence with "and." This previous sentence is a perfect example of that's done.

No, because people don't always follow grammatical rules when they talk.
Though if one of your characters is a stodgy, pedantic, know-it-all grammar snob, he or she wouldn't start sentences with "and".
