Q0: When checking in a few spec file chances I discovered, that the
release and revision numbers are automatically incremented in the
following way: 1.401-17.1 -> 1.401-18.1 -> 1.401-19.1. Where can I
find any documentation about this behaviour, and how is the "Release:"
field of the spec file interpreted? Or is it just beeing ignored?

This behaviour is expected, Release is automatically increased, and you really dont want to mess with it.

Q2: Where is defined when or how old revisions/releases are removed
from the repositories?

Old revisions of binary packages are expected to be deleted, the system does not have infinite resources ;-)
