It's dead. The goal posts are out of bounds, so if a ball touches them it becomes dead. (Although if a ball hits an upright or the crossbar but still goes through, the kick is still good.)

Can the kicking team score on a punt if it goes though the field goal?

No. If the punt crosses the back of the end zone it is a touch back, and the other team takes possession on the 20 yard line. A drop kick, however, where the ball bounces off of the ground first, can be kicked and is treated the same as a field goal.

What is the rule when a kickoff goes into end zone bounces back into the field of play but is untouched by the receiving team?

I'm not completely sure but I believe once the kicker has kicked the ball if the ball lands in the end zone it doesn't matter where it bounces after that, once its in the end zone it's automatically a touchback and play begins on the 20 yard line.
