Not necessary. A Prime Minister can be a member of the Rajya Sabha too.

Better not. In that case we may never get a PM who has not bribed or made himself open for being bribed. Election needs a lot of money to be spent. What one gets from the party fund may not even cover what one has to contribute to the party fund for getting a ticket to stand for the election. So however honest and straight forward one may be it is next to impossible to win an election to Lok Sabha totally on merit.
