No, but why would you want to do that? These are standalone, DRM free installation executables. You can do whatever you want with them without having to rely on someone else's client software and server infrastructure.

No, you download installers directly from here and can install them when and wherever you want.

Actually you can download them through your browser, the GOG downloader is optional.
As far as games on Steam that depends on if you'd rather have them DRM free or not mostly, but a lot of them come with some extras.
And there are a lot of games here not on Steam or Origin.

No client, you can download just the installer if you so want...

There is no GOG client. If you want to see how it goes, go to your My Account and download some of the free games.
I'll be lazy and copy paste Wikipedia.
