QGIS may be run either within or outside GRASS session.
It is more comfortable within GRASS session, because when you want to
add a new layer, the dialog items are already set to your current 
gisdbase/location/mapset so you select just the map, or mapset/map.

Data providers are currently available only for vectors,
raster support is based on GDAL (+libgrass). 
I would prefer direct access also for rasters in future.

Mac OSX was discussed recently:

It should work on Cygwin, however nobody tried AFAIK.
