 From my understanding from Pacemaker integration feature in `man sbd`

Yes, sbd will do self-fence upon lose access to sbd disk when the node 
is not in quorate state.

Yes, 2-node cluster is special. The node lose access to disk will 
self-fence even it is in "quorate" state.

Yes, without functioning SBD, the pacemaker won't start at the systemd
