Hoods on zoom lenses. Do we really use them? What about UV filter for protection?

Got two questions in one.

1. hoods: I always attach hoods to my Nikon 24-85mm and Nikon 70-200mm f4.

Sure it protects the glass. But do we really need them to use em on zooms to avoid flares?

2. UV filter to protect the glass. Do you really use them? Any drawbacks or bad effect on IQ? I am talking about quality UV filters from Hoya and alike.

Thanks
