The file system keeps track of last access time; it's not exactly the same thing, but might work as an approximation. Certainly if the access time is further back, it has not been executed (or read, or written to) in that time period.

No. You can do a ls command with -l and use the -u option but if someone did a 'cat yourscript', then the time would be when that happened versus if someone actually ran the script.
