That is redundant.  If Connect() does not connect, it will throw an

You would need to put that message into a try...except block.

Indy relies heavily on exceptions.  What you are seeing is simply an
exception being thrown internally.  However, because you are running inside
the IDE, the debugger is going to catch and display every exception that is
thrown, even internal ones that don't actually make it up to your code.
Simply press F9 to continue and the debugger will pass the exception back to
the application for normal handling.  If you want, you can add
EIdConnClosedGracefully (or EIdSilentException) to the debugger's list of
exceptions to ignore.

No.  Have a look at the following article for a detailed explanation:
