No, the broker does not include a load balancer. You may be able to
insert one on the network though.

Yes, you could place a load-balancer in front of the broker and
configure it with the addresses of all the nodes in the cluster. The
load balancer must be configured in such a way that consumers connected
to a failed master node aren't transparently reconnected to a different
node, because their subscription will need to be renewed.
