Re: Router connected to a routed port

yes it is possible. this could be usefull for example to make dynamic routing between the router and the L3 interface in the switch.

Re: Router connected to a routed port

The primary benefit of connecting a router to a switch's routed port is any spanning tree issues in the network wouldn't affect the routing between the switch and router. If it's an option it's desirable to setup routing this way.
