Does a walk factor into batting average?

No, walks do not factor. They don't count as At Bats and therefore don't affect the batting average. For example: a player is at the plate 4 times; he gets walked twice and has one hit. The two walks don't count as At Bats. He therefore has 1 Hit in 2 AB which, of course, is a .500 BA.

Fewest walks in a season is kind of a bad question because I'm sure there have been plenty of players who could have played 20 games and had zero walks in any given year (or something like that). However, the MLB record for fewest walks while still being eligible for the batting title was Shawon Dunston who had 8 in 490 at-bats in 1997.
