1.AC power is optional. USB connection alone in Your computer is perfectly fine.
And maybe the manufacturer thinks that You may want to use it as charging station without the need of data transfer. (That You may require sometimes)
2.Yes.. Power Supply is included.
In addition if You use AC power cable and USB cable to your computer at the same time, it does not affect performance or faults on operation.
But then again what may happen, because of 2 power supply on Your Computer; You may hear a very low Hum during, recording, editing videos or in Your PA system. I had this problem with my audio interface so I remove the AC power during editing or recording. But nothing to worry if Youre not doing this kind of stuff.
hope this helps
