If they don't sign with the team that drafted them, or otherwise violate their amateur status, they can attend college and play Baseball for the college team, then go back into the undrafted player pool the following year. They can also sign with the team that drafted them, play for that team and attend college in the off-season, but they are not eligible to play baseball for their college team, but may play another sport in college such as Basketball or football.

No. Attending college is not a requirement. Players are drafted from both high school and college.
