rate of speciation



I have a couple of questions:

1. Is the rate of speciation related in some way, to the lifespan of a
species. (ie. does a species change (diversify) faster if the lifespan is
shorter?).

2. If a shark species has not changed, is it possible for a species of shark
from say 250 MYA to produce viable offspring with a shark from today?
