Hmm... depends exactly what you mean by "hot key".  The GNOME UI
guidelines lists the standard application-level keyboard shortcuts that
GNOME 2.0 applications ought to use:

but unfortunately not all GNOME 2.0 applications fully comply to this
yet, and of course it doesn't cover functions that are specific to
particular applications.

At a lower level, a proposal for the keyboard navigation for each
individual widget can be found here:

but it's a little out of date now, and not everything ended up quite
working exactly as this document proposed.

Finally, the GNOME documentation team is writing a document describing
how to navigate/use all parts of the desktop using only the keyboard,
but this won't be available for a few weeks yet.

Not currently, but somebody is actually working on that feature right
now, so it will hopefully be added within the next few weeks.
