1. This is a very good question, here's what I've found on the internet, please check the link below:
2. From my opinion, I rarely heard switch on/off and havn't used the phrase before. Usually, I used turn on/off to say such things.

我個人認為兩個都一樣,turn on 與 switch on都是"打開",也就是"接上電源"的動作,不過"turn on"的用法是必較普遍.與裝置是轉的與按的無關,現在的電子產品有那麼多都是遙控開關,還有用聲音啟動的,還不是用turn on. switch on有點文言文的味道.

Now a day, they are interchangeable. But in old days...
（左）用 turn on/off (轉)
（右）用 switch on/off (切換)
(left) turn on/off (right) switch on/off

if it's rotary switch - use turn on/off
if it's toggle switch - use switch on/off參考資料： google images search
