These two sentences are correct but the first one means that Albert Einstein is a name many people have heard, while in the second, you're talking to Albert Einstein (or someone you jokingly call that way) about a name many people have head.

The second, no comma. That doesn't mean there aren't cases where a comma shouldn't be used in a simple sentence like that, but this isn't one of them. A comma would add a pause when speaking (for emphasis), and you don't want a pause there.

No, the comma should not be there.
