Broadcasts (IP=255.255.255.255) are not forwarded by routers. Devices that do are called bridges or switches, not routers. Directed broadcasts (IP=192.0.2.255/24) could be forwarded to a specific network, if the router was specifically configured to do so. But routers on the Internet are never configured that way.

No. Broadcasts and multicasts are dropped all over the Internet.
