Better for beginners of what? If you want to longboard... learn on a longboard
If you want to skateboard... learn on a skateboard
They are quite different to ride, the principals are the same so if you can ride a longboard, you'll be able to ride a skateboard but you'll find doing tricks on a longboard is far harder than on a skateboard.

No they do not. I bought a sector nine pintail longboard (10 by 46) 5 years ago and I weigh 195. It takes a lot to try to snap one of those babies.
