Hi Hoan,

PowerDNS can replicate from a primary BIND server without problems. If the BIND zone is signed, PowerDNS will (by default) detect that, and act accordingly: it will enable dnssec replies, but will not try to perform signing by itself. See https://docs.powerdns.com/authoritative/dnssec/modes-of-operation.html#pre-signed-records

Regarding your second question: you can, but make sure you understand the performance implications. See https://docs.powerdns.com/authoritative/settings.html#log-dns-queries on how to enable it.
