No, the global cool down is not effected, except in the case of cast-time abilities.

Yes. As of game update 2.0 Alacrity was improved. It now affects resource regeneration and the global cooldown.

And as of game update 3.0 alacrity also affects over-time effects and everything else. A character with 10% alacrity should be 10% faster in everything.

Note also that as of 3.0, Alacrity affects everything. Tick speed of your DoTs, internal (proc) cooldowns, ability cooldowns, etc. –  Matthew Read Dec 4 at 3:40
