If not, are there any upcoming USB-C / thunderbolt hubs that might support a single cable connection for two of these?

Can you daisy chain this from the LG UltraFine 5K Display?
I already own this display (the LG UltraFine 4K) and I'm thinking of additionally purchasing the 5K display for use with my 2018 13" MacBook Pro with Touch Bar. Can the 4K display be connected to one of the output USB-C ports on the 5K display, thereby daisy-chaining it? I would prefer not to connect the two displays directly to my laptop, if possible.

Does the Display also support a connection to Ethernet ?
Currently my Thunderbolt 1 Display from Apple is a perfect Docking station. I only have to connect the charging cable and the TB cable. All Other connections are already on the display connected: USB and more important 1GBit Ethernet connection.
Will this display also support a connection (through the USB Ports ) with adapter ( not good !) to my Ethernet network ?

Poor performance on older generation Macbook Pro?
I have a 2.9 i7, with 16gb of ram mid 2015 Macbook Pro. I'm running the 5K display at a scaled resolution and I'm battling with CPU usage problems.
Does the display require a lot of CPU power to run on an older generation system? I'm guessing because it's pushing the video card so hard, it's affecting performance of my CPU too?
Just curious how that works. I already ordered a new MB Pro to hopefully dissolve this issue.
