No need, all copper gas pipes are grounded, usually at the meter.

Its fine as long as there is no vibration that may cause a hole.

If it makes you feel better shove some insulation between them but there is no need to - if it will make you sleep sounder, go for it.

No,it's not safe or to code to run a gas line touching a electrical line.

You would need to check local building code, gas code, electrical code and fire code for a definitive answer. I have seen licensed electricians and gasfitters install them with the type NM-B sheathing in contact with the PVC cover on the copper gas pipe.
