No, there is no reason to do that unless you'd want different IP addresses for relaying the traffic. A single relay may connect to any amount of dispatchers, so, for resilience, you can make those 2 relays connect simultaneously to the 2 dispatchers.

Actually I think you will. We pass the control to the Linux kernel, so it's up to her to sue those cores. It's an iptables thing, so I guess it uses multiple cores, but I can't say with 100% certainty.
