I can answer both of your questions (sort of) in one shot: SBM Utilities.
In addition to the backup/restore function in the main SBM Utilities
package, it has an extra standalone backup utility. Using a working Newt,
install the extra backup utility onto an empty storage card large enough to
hold the contents of your "dead" Newt. Insert this card into your dead
Newt and turn it on. If all that is wrong is a broken screen then the
utility will automatically back up the entire internal store and beep when
done. Read the instructions for details.

       That and five bucks will get you a small coffee at Starbucks.
