2) You would want to have dcoumentation/evidence for all the awards/distinctions you state on your CV.
Point 2 is very important for your career in academia because if one day anyone asks to see proof and you can't provide it, it does not bode well for your professional reputation/credibility. You should make sure that you have a letter or some evidence with you for every award stated on the CV, not just the possibility of asking the awarding institution.
E.g. I won a competitive and substantial scholarship that I turned down. The institute is unlikely to remember or keep official records of those who turned down their scholarships. So, I have kept the awarding letter (with official letterhead) with me as proof.
