Magnetic moments of nucleons

I was comparing my notes of the nuclear physics class (undergraduate level) on magnetic moments of nucleons with the Krane's explanation. In my notes I wrote that there are two types of magnetic ...

Why do we assume a neutron has no electromagnetic charge?

If a neutron has a mass ($1.674929\times 10^{-27} kg$) and all mass is defined as energy in the formula $E=mc^2$, does that mean that a neutron has an electromagnetic charge but is overall neutral, or ...

Is there a repulsive force between neutrons at all distances or just real close?

With particles of the same charge there is a repulsive force at all distances and physicists talk about neutrons repelling each other. Does this repulsion occur at all distances like with charges ...
