Would having the os and programs on separate drives increase performance? or would having the os and programs on 1 drive, and all files on the other be better?

Depends on the speed of the drive. If you have your os and programs on a ssd, you'd see faster boot times and load times for those programs.

No. The old days of DOS where programs were all self contained are long gone. Even when programs are installed into a separate partition/disk, registry entries are required/installed in the OS.
