  • Hello, short answer to the first question is "yes": have a search for "Raspberry Pi Zero gadget ethernet". Jul 11, 2019 at 8:45
  • In case there's any confusion, the "ethernet gadget" part (which would be USB-OTG on the Pi -> USB on the PC) would what makes it possible for the pi to communicate with the PC directly over USB; you could then arrange for the PC to bridge or forward an internet connection to it. You can also connect the Zero via USB serial and communicate, but you could not forward an internet connection that way.
