you'll use some glycogen, sure, especially if you aren't fat adapted. but if you're just walking around your body isn't going burn through it's glycogen stores. it may burn more glucose if you have eaten a lot of carbs but if it's for any extended period of time it's primary fuel source is still gonna be fat. that's why walking is a great idea to improve your overall health.

no as long as you are below 75% (give or take depending on level of fitness) of your max heart rate you'll be using fat primarily as fuel.
