It's up to the publisher/rights-holder which version(s) they submit. Sometimes they will submit both so you just need to select the right one for your playlist. If they have only submitted the clean version then there's no other choice.

Yes but it's very hard to determine espcially when ever album could possibly have both versions and its not clearly indicated. The butchered version should be default be hidden (there could be a setting for this, since some people might have reasons to prefer the butchered version.)
"Spotify does not censor music in any way. We simply make the music available in whatever form it was given to us.
Albums are often released in two versions: the "explicit" and the "clean" version. Usually, both versions are available on Spotify. However, as both versions are seen as identical, they will be grouped when shown in the artist view page. Only one of these albums will be immediately visible. The other album can reached by clicking the button that displays duplicates, a small arrow to the far right-hand side next to the album title."
