Sadly, I don't know the answer to either of those questions.
I would speculate that fanfic is not respected because of two things:
1. It's got no standards, ie anyone can write it and whether it's decent or not, find a place to get it up on the web.
2. I think generally writers who are serious write things that can one day be published. The legalities of writing fan fic with copyrighted characters is so messy, that the only logical reason to do so would be for the writers own enjoyment (or maybe practice, ie just sharping those skills up)

Don't be too discouraged about writing fanfic. Granted, you're probably not going to get fanfics published, sold, etc. and there are a lot of legal issues if you try to.
However, I think fanfics can be well respected in the right circles (i.e. fanfic websites), if they're good stories. Fanfics can be very fun to share with other fans, and best of all from a writer's perspective, they give you great practice. It's sorta like a new artist starting to learn by tracing or copying... It might not legitimately be your "work", but when the time comes that you do break out with your own stuff, you'll have a lot of experience.
