A naturalized citizen can be denaturalized if citizenship was "illegally procured" or acquired by "concealment of a material fact or by willful misrepresentation."

Therefore, the answer to your question is yes.

Yes, but highly unlikely to actually occur & difficult to prove that the marriage was not bona fide when originally entered into.
