The following are typical of the guidance on this matter:

From's Ask The Experts column:

" study actually suggested that sperm count increases
 with increased ejaculation..."


"...masturbating daily or ejaculating frequently does not
 reduce sperm count in later life."

In an article by Susan Yudt on teenwire, which discusses
Masturbation Myths for both males and females:

"...some people worry that masturbating frequently will
 affect a girl's fertility or a guy's ability to produce
 sperm. It doesn't. A guy may find that he has less volume
 of semen if he ejaculates frequently, and his semen may
 contain less sperm. But that doesn't mean that his sperm
 count will be reduced in the future. The testicles produce
 and store sperm beginning at puberty, and sperm production
 continues through most of adult life."

And, from the Sexual Health Network:

"...the more ejaculations you have in a relatively short
 period, the more depleted your sperm supply is. In general,
 sperm levels reach "normal" after 2-3 days but, as you said,
 there are times when it might take longer. There's no magic
 mathematical formula for how many times a week you can
 ejaculate and how it affects your sperm count: The more
 often you ejaculate, the longer it will take."

No and no. If it was or did there'd be a lot of damaged, infertile people out there.
