Would the current through a zener diode increase rapidly once the breakdown voltage has been reached
Depends on the circuit it is a part of. Also depends on what qualifies as "rapid". In general I would say that it is a reasonably fair statement, but there are some caveats associated with it.
Yes if you continue to increase the applied voltage at the same rate.
