You should be able to punt at least 45 yards if you are in the NFL. Some punters can punt much further than this.
You cannot catch a punt while out of bounds in the NFL.
The longest punt in NFL history was 98 yards by Steve O'Neal of the New York Jets in a game against the Denver Broncos in 1969. Although the kick was made before the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 (the Jets and Broncos were American Football League teams), the punt is still recognized as the longest punt in the history of the NFL.
As of the end of the 2007 season: Brian Mitchell holds the NFL career record for number of punt returns and number of kickoff returns. He had 463 punt returns and 607 kickoff returns. As far as TDs are concerned, the record is 13 and is also held by Brian Mitchell (9 punt returns, 4 kickoff returns). ~Devin Hester Is The Best Punt Returner In The NFL Today. Concidering Half way through his rookie Year He Had 6 TDs from Kick and Punt Returns No Doubt Hes The Best.~(9-1-09)Forever!/
Yes, the team with control of the football may punt on any down.

The NFL minimum for scoreboards is 85 feet. So I would presume the avg NFL punt is less than 85 feet, guestimation is 75feet.
that's a random punt number and unsignificant, the longest nfl punt was 98 yards... but the longest field goal was 63 yards by Jason elam
