Is it possible to open my encrypted container in a different operational system?

Say I have a container made in Windows 7, can I just move it to my Ubuntu and open the container there normally?

Yes. As long as you have support for the filesystem used inside container linstalled in linux too. There is even support for exfat (fat64), but I'd avoid using it. Ntfs is better and works fine on linux.

Yes, but in exception of encrypted system drives. So far I know they need a bootloader either running on the drive or from the rescue disk in order to be mounted correctly.

Dynamic containers do not seem to be fully cross-platform.
