Combination stainless steel chain/ galvanized steel anchor

Just to understand your point, it is O.K. to use an ss chain connected to a galvanized anchor with a good quality galvanized shackle?

I assume that you do use ss shackles for the running rigging or you avoid them altogether?

I heard that when the galvanized shackles fail they do not fail suddently but they deform first, so they give some warning. The ss shackles just break suddently. Is it true?

thanks
