    Yes, basically - for now.  We're nearest the sun early in January, and we're at our furthest early in July.

    What does precession have to do with it? You don't seem to know what it is.

    Yes, every 112,000 years, the Earth's orbit precesses, it's called apsidal precession. This is where in its orbit the Earth is the furthest and closest to the Sun. Right now, the Earth is furthest from the Sun during northern summer, and closest during northern winter. It's opposite of course during southern summer and winter. In about 56,000 years, it will become the opposite.

    The answer is no.  The earth's position relative to the sun is a fixed position.
