1.       If a non Muslim does not have the impurity (Najaasat) of any Alcohol or Haraam products (etc) in his mouth, then his saliva (Jhoota) is considered clean (Paak). However this will have affect on the Taqwa of a Person.


سُؤْرُ الْآدَمِيِّ طَاهِرٌ وَيَدْخُلُ فِي هَذَا الْجُنُبُ وَالْحَائِضُ وَالنُّفَسَاءُ وَالْكَافِرُ إلَّا سُؤْرَ شَارِبِ الْخَمْرِ وَمَنْ دُمِيَ فُوهُ إذَا شَرِبَ عَلَى فَوْرِ ذَلِكَ فَإِنَّهُ نَجَسٌ وَإِنْ ابْتَلَعَ رِيقَهُ مِرَارًا طَهُرَ فَمُهُ عَلَى الصَّحِيحِ كَذَا فِي السِّرَاجِ الْوَهَّاجِ. (فتاوى هندية ص23 ج1)

(Fataawa Mahmoodiyyah [Vol. 5 Pg.237])

2.       No there will not be Kaffara. This will be considered يمين لغو (Yameen-e-Lagw).

Allah has mentioned Yameen-e-Lagw in the Quraan:

لَا يُؤَاخِذُكُمُ اللَّهُ بِاللَّغْوِ فِي أَيْمَانِكُمْ (سورة المائدة: 89)

Allah does not hold you accountable for your Lagw (ineffectual) oats.

 However this is a bad habit that should be avoided.
