Provided that "computer1" is a valid address resolvable through DNS (or other mechanism your network uses), then yes. But basicaly it should be safer to use an IP address of the remote box.

Yes, using IP address is better since it do not need to resolve host-name. Also, remember to add firewall access of port 3306 in the computer that has MySQL server installed.
