Very likely. It was built in 1970 and asbestos regulation had not yet gone into law in the building trades.

It's unknown. You would need an asbesto specialist to find out as part of the buying process and check any disclosures offered about it. You could also check with the Housing Department of the City of Los Angeles. In LA in there are a lot of this type of ceiling, you could have it removed or negotiated it. Are you a buyer, seller, renter, or ....?

Possibly... You'll need to ask a contractor or a qualified building inspector may have an opinion. The property owner may be obliged to disclose this as well if they're aware of it.. Best of luck.
