Yes; look for "daemons" in the manual.

Depending on what you're looking for, probably not, but I've noticed
quite a few other tools recently that can monitor IMAP mailboxes for
new messages, and those should work fine alongside Gnus.  It looks
like you're using CVS Emacs under Linux, so you might see if your
preferred desktop environment has a useful tool for this.

With IMAP in Gnus in particular, you have two options, which roughly
boil down to "read the mail on the server" (using nnimap) or "grab the
mail and read it locally" (using another mail backend such as nnml
with an imap mail-source).
