1. If I have a RAC physical standby database and instance 1 is mounted and is applying redo, can i mount second instance if I wish for example to perform a backup using rman?Yes as Emre mentioned, you can mount all of the instances in cluster.
2. If instance 1 is mounted and applying redo can I stop it and start instance 2 and continue to apply redo??Redo apply will active only on one node, remaining standby instances will be idle
So you can start recovery any instance where you wish.
