I suppose there is a 50-move rule, because it doesn't seem to make sense to continue a game that has not been able to see any progress in 50 moves. And since it is based on orthodox Chess, one would not expect any needless alterations of the Chess rules.

Likewise, one would expect stalemate to be a draw. But of course stalamate is only a theoretical possibility. To run out of legal moves you should have almost no material left. Which here means the opponnet has nearly all the pieces. So he would have such an overwhelming advantage that he would have checkmated you long before you got anywhere near having so little material that stalemate becomes a possibility.

(That were two questions, BTW! ;-) )
