>2, yes. But the (private) ip address of the mx WAN port itself has to be unique. / You can configure a VIP if you want (3rd address needed)
Allow me to clarify this a step further.
Each MX WAN interface in use must have a unique IP address. This might be a public IP address on a routed subnet (such as a /29) or a private IP behind something else doing NAT.
However you can also have an additional VIP - a shared IP address - that is controlled by one of the MX at a time. If an MX or something fails the other MX takes over that IP.
