#1;No; you, as a donee, are NOT subject to any tax on the gift money that you receive from your parents from abroad
#2;No not at all. however, a US bank receiving money, more than $10K, needs to automatially report it to the Dept of US treasury for info return purposes.
So, you are NOT subject to any US tax(es) on your gift money from abroad.
