Personally I stay away from encryption. I can't speak for this device but on the s3, if you encrypted sdcard, if you factory reset, that encryption key is lost and that data forever inaccessible. Whether nexus is any better, I don't know.
Recovery will boot fine but since it doesn't have the encryption key, I would assume it cannot browse data that's encrypted. Id love to hear otherwise on this
There will always be an overhead when writing / reading data within the encryption. Extra cycles will be used to actually process the encryption so I expect a slight impact in battery life and a slightly bigger impact to performance
