I believe that they can be set up for recirculate or exhaust. Mine was set up for exhaust and was vented up to the attic just below a roof vent. Works fine and no extra holes in roof.

Yes, you can do either internal or external exhaust, but NEVER dump a vent into an attic space. It should always go outside.

They could be set up either way. Venting outside is better if you want to exhaust odors from cooking faster. If you do a lot of cooking and you could exhaust it outside you should.
