That is a misconception. While part of the modern science evolved from Empirical method, just as huge part evolved from the Hypotheticol-Deductive model. Most modern mathematical models are evidence of this.
No it does not. Science simply does not give a rats behind about things that cannot be proven.
It does not assume that the world can be divided into such things.
