Default Questions about the structural integrity field

I've always found the Enterprise A to be the most beautiful Enterprise of all time, such a graceful and sexy design. It was the only starship in which it looked great at every angle. However, one of the things that bothered me about it was its neck section and the warp pylon struts, they were way too thin and frail. Just by looking at those sections I could nearly see them snap off like twigs. In TWoK, the Reliant fired on the Enterprise's neck section and it was a miracle that it didn't break apart. Realistically, it should have broken off.

1. Is this where the structural integrity field comes in?

2. Also, what would happen if the starship Enterprise traveled at maximum impulse speed without the structural integrity field? Would the neck and warp pylon struts snap off?
