How does the native number/sim in your watch work on VZW?

Newer to Verizon and newer still to watches on VZW....

Is it possible to receive and SEND texts using the number associated with the sim in a watch rather than the phone it's connected to through integrated messaging?

Is it possible to make or receive a CALL using the number associated with the watch sim rather than the connected phone?

Right now I'm using a sim that was on a $20 add a line - it will receive texts to the number but not send. When I call the number I get sent to voicemail. If I switch the line to the $5 watch plan will I still be able to receive text messages on that number and will my voicemail account stay active and answer the line?

I'm doing this on an LG Urbane 2 and a Pixel. If anyone wants to explain my options to use something other than Message+ as my default SMS app I'm all ears...

Thanks in advance all!
