I think they are like apples are to oranges. A performance artist's work is his/her action/antics. According to wikipedia, "Performance art is art in which the actions of an individual or a group at a particular place and in a particular time constitute the work." I.e. the work is the action and not some static drawing/painting.

performing artists

(A painter or a calligrapher is also an artist, but not a performing artist.)

Performance art (xingwei yishu) is quite different from performing arts (biaoyan yishu).

Re: #4

It covers other kinds of performing artists as well, such as musicians (vocal and instrumental) and dancers.
