you can read the rules on amsat fd. it allows one contact on each fm satellite. 
if you would like to make your contact with aprs, then you can count that as 
your one each fm satellite qso. the rules further state "All 
packet/RTTY/ASCII/AMTOR QSO's through analog transponders are 
counted as CW QSO's". APRS is packet. 

>    2.      Are U/S and L/S separate transponders?

The rules state "Each satellite transponder is considered a separate band"
thus U/S is separate from L/S
