Yes.

Depending on the size ie power of the solar panel.

Hobbyist usually use lowest power solar panels and it may not be a problem in over charging.

Yes. As long as the voltage of the solar cell is higher than 9V (+ the voltage drop on the diode) it will charge the the battery. Until it is full. Than it will make it burn, explode or whatever overloaded batteries do...
