    on point one, make sure to properly set the volumes in ALL of the locations in settings:
    settings > sound > volumes etc
    and
    settings > Language & Input >
    and
    the volume control on side of tablet
    and
    the app you are using to produce the sounds

    given that you have all those set properly, you can also use apps that amplify the sound BUT use caution as the included speakers are pretty easy to break by too high a volume set.

    I use earphones / earbuds instead and they work better and sound better than the crap speakers.

    on point 2 you can only connect to your tv via WiFi over LAN using any DLNA, UPnP, etc enabling application. Some examples would be the free iMediaShare and BubbleUpnP and that assumes you have a TV connected to your LAN via ROKU, SmartTV, etc and the Media Server app running.

    edit: wired connection via HDMI cable is NOT possible since I/O circuits are not present on the N7

    Some examples of Media Server Apps running on your desktop would be Plex, MediaMonkey, XBMC, TVersity, etc.
