    Yes, but don't do that. The hiss is your coolant escaping.

    Yes. But you don't want to do that as THAT IS YOUR COOLANT.

    COMPARE THAT WITH: "If I take a cold chisel and hammer could I pop a hole into the car gas tank so the fuel leaks out." Ans. Yes you could but now you are losing fuel onto the ground so YOU LOSE. There is no benefit for you doing that.

    Same train of thought (but on a different track)

    It should, it is also against the law, and if it sprays out on your hand it could cause damage. Schrader valves  can go bad, can leak or seal solid.

    Yes, so do not do it! Releasing refrigerant into the atmosphere intentionally is against the law!
