A couple of gas pipe questions

I just had a new condensing boiler installed. I put an outlet in near the boiler to plug in the condensate pump.

Can I zip-tie the pipe's power cord to the gas pipe (black iron) or is that somehow unsafe? It's a pretty heavy duty power cord.

Also, is this gas pipe supposed to be bonded to my panel somehow (or is it via the boiler's ground?).

The power circuit supplying the boiler should have an equipment ground. If so, that equipment will provide NEC compliant gas pipe bonding. Local or state codes may require additional bonding. CSST piping is sure to require additional bonding. Zip ties no problem.
