Not that I know of.  But you may be able to make use of View | Web 
Layout, which displays your document without its page structure (but 
doesn't lose what you have in the document); this enables you to 
concentrate on the text itself and not the final layout.

Again, I don't think you can.  But this viewing style appears to be 
saved with documents, so you would need to set it only once for each 
document.  You could also save a template in Web Layout view, even 
perhaps making this your default template for new documents.  But I 
see no way of making this happen automatically for documents you 
receive from others.

I trust this helps.
