1. I'm not a lawyer, but to a certain extent the answer is 'yes'.

Trump issued an executive order giving federal workers Christmas Eve off. As far as the private sector, government contracts going forward could contain clauses requiring workers supporting the contract be given a particular day off as a paid holiday. As an example, I did IT work for a state government and got President's Day as a paid holiday unlike people who worked on other accounts. That said, the government cannot unilaterally impose such conditions on existing contracts that do not contain such clauses though.

2. When a President dies, we always have a federal day of mourning.
