Yes, the Seattle Seahawks won the division in 2010 with a NFL worst record of 7-9, making the playoffs ahead of the 6-10 49ers.

No - there have been plenty of teams with 8-8 records in the playoffs, but no team with a losing record has yet made it in.

Update:On 1-2-11, the Seattle Seahawks became the first 7-9 team in NFL history to win their division and make the playoffs.

Yes. The 1970 Cincinnati Bengals rebounded from a 1-6 record to win their last seven games and qualify for the AFC playoffs. They lost in the first round of the playoffs to John Unitas and the Baltimore Colts, who went on to win Super Bowl V.
