Bunch of questions about memcache

I'm evaluating memcache for use where I work (dating site) and needed
a few questions answered to keep the bosses happy.  I'll be using the
PHP client.

1) how many memcache servers can be up and running before the amount
of time the client spends more time checking numerous memcache servers
than it would if it got the results from a very large database
containing 1.5 million+ records

2) what happens when memcache is full and you ask it to add something
in?  How does it decide what key/value pair to turf out to make room?
