-b master ensures that master is unconditionally checked out locally for
you. Dunno if the HEAD in the emacs repo can ever point to something
else than master. Anyway, both commands should clone exactly the same
thing onto your harddisk.

AFAIK no, elpa is separate, even the code to (re)build the archive. But
the Emacs repo contains the code for the package manager (package.el).
