Does the 30 degree rule always apply when you hit a cue ball into the object ball halfway, in a game of pool?

I can get the aiming down mostly but just wondered if... I hit the object ball halfway, would it make the path of the cueball where I was aiming and the object ball 30 degrees? What about hitting a 1/4 of the object ball, does that count as a 90 degree shot?

9 ball and 8 ball break....?

Was watching a men's tournament on TV, where 3 balls had to come past the headstring to be a legal break...obviously, it was a "tourney rule". In BCA rules (9 and 8ball), how many balls have to touch the rail for it to be a legal break.....and if not a legal break, what are your options? Rack again and break or accept the lay out?
