FastCache will work even if you have AuthUser enabled, it just won't
speed up anything while you're actually logged in.
This is due to the way that FastCache works: it only writes pages to
and reads pages from the cache when it knows that your access to that
page doesn't require any login and that there aren't any parts of the
page that are rendered differently because you're logged in.

No. With or without FastCache an anonymous browser of your site ought
to get the exact same bytes. Your processor usage might go down a bit,
though, as it's much easier to serve a static page from the cache than
to dynamically generate it.
