as for disconnecting a wire from the HU I'll check out a few places I know of for some wiring diagrams, I only have the service manuals for a 2000, I'll update you if I find something out
Yes, all the steering wheel controls work as they shoud when it is not ramping up or down. For the short time that the sound is going up or down the volume control on the wheel (or face for that matter) will not override what is happening untill full or no volume has been reached. If the "event" is happening the mute will work to silince things at any time.
