Use THHN #14 for the lights and #12 THHN for the receptacles. You can run both in the same conduit. Many electricians would also suggest running a ground wire even though the conduit serves that purpose also. When you run two circuits in the same conduit you can use one ground wire for both circuits. The ground wire is sized to the higher amperage circuit so in conduits that have both circuits use #12. In #14 only runs #14 ground.

Yes, with the green sized to the highest amp circuit. At each junction box the green must be pigtailed to the junction box.
