Yes, 1V= 1J/Coulomb, so 1 Volt is 1 Joule of Work per Coulomb of charge transferred

Yes, and when you are finding the maximum amount of work a battery can do at a constant temperature and pressure, which is equal to ΔG, you will be multiplying the cell potential E, which is in volts, by Faraday's constant which is 96,485 Coulomb/mol, so your answer will be reported in Joules.
