Yes it can, but the ball becomes free (live) at that spot instead of the ten yards.

Does an onside kick have to travel 10 yards before the receiving team can catch it?

No, the receiving team may attempt to take possession at any time after the kick. It is the kicking team that must wait for the ball to travel 10 yards before they can be the first to touch it. However, should a member of the receiving team touch the ball before it travels 10 yards and fumble/muff it, the kicking team can recover the ball and take possession without penalty.

When a punt is kicked can the opposing team hit the person who is catching the ball?

If you are a K player (kicking team) and 'hit' or 'make contact' with the R player (receiving team) trying to catch the ball before or during the catch, it is a kick-catch interference foul. The R player attempting to catch the kick is given protection. He is given an 'opportunity to catch the ball'. If the R player asks for a fair catch, he is never to be hit, unless the ball hits the ground.
