Question about China

In China if you are talking about a friend of a friend you use his name/his surname/ both name and surname to talk about him? (the person you are talking to doesn't know him)

And if your friend has a boyfriend and you ask for the name of her boyfriend what would be the most natural and common answer? His name? His surname? His name and surname?

Also, when I meet someone new and they, for example, say "my name is Zhenwei You". Is it rude if I ask with which charachters is their name written?
