Genreation I - III

Thunder Wave is unaffected by Volt Absorb. Others are affected.

Generation IV

Thunder Wave now can't affect Pokémon with Volt Absorb or Motor Drive. Lightningrod is affected.

Generation V

Thunder Wave now cannot affect a target with Lightningrod.

So in Gen V, Thunder Wave has no effect on Pokemon with those Abilities.

To answer the second part of your Q, all Electric type moves recover 1⁄4 of its maximum HP when hit by an Electric-type move.
