I have heard that S&P Index Funds have outperformed most mutual Funds, and I would like to know more about them. How do they work?

1. If a fund tracks the S&P Index by buying shares of each stock in the S&P, what happens to the dividends and distributions produced by these stocks? Are they distributed to the Fund owners, or reinvested?

2. How can I tell if a specific Index Fund, like Vanguard is overpriced?

3. The S&P is near a historical high. Is now a good time to invest?

I would appreciate any response.
