I am guessing you are using version I say that because in
that version and earlier versions you had to put two page numbers on
the master page if your pages were going to be greater than 9. In later
versions this was fixed so it needs only one page number field on the
master page, regardless of how many pages your document has.

As for the other problem, I can't help, as I haven't used in a
long time and don't even have it installed any more. A lot of people
(me included) are using the latest development version 1.3.8, even
though it is not officially recommended for production work. The next
stable release will be 1.4, which will likely be released early next
year, so 1.3.8 is very close to the final version. In fact, the release
of 1.3.9 is imminent.

In 1.3.8 I can apply the master page to a document page, then just click
on the document page to view it. There is no need to restart Scribus.
