Elasticsearch Cluster and best setup

I have 2 Windows servers with the following on each server. I have a couple of questions.

  1. Can and should Logstash send data to both Elasticsearch nodes for load balance?
  2. Should I put Logstash on a server by itself or should I install Logstash on the other server?
  3. If I install Logstash on the other server do I have to load the beats templates again and in the same manner as the other (match exactly)?

Server 1:
Elasticsearch (Master)

Server 2:
Elasticsearch (Has Master role in case the other fails)

Thanks in Advance
