Yes, it will be different. The practical impact depends on how
homogeneous your data are across the shards and how large your shards
are. If you have small and dissimilar shards, your ranking will suffer a
lot.

Work is being done to remedy this:

It is not formally guaranteed, but for most practical purposes, faceting
on multi-shards will give you the same results as single-shards.

I don't know about more-like-this. My guess is that it will be affected
in the same way that standard searches are.

Yes. From a user-perspective, searches are no different.
