Hi, does Linux programming differ from one distribution to another?

Generally, no. It might be versions of libraries that differ at most, but the Linux Application Checker (http://ldn.linuxfoundation.org/lsb/check-your-app) helps with that.

Essentially no, as the popular languages are all cross platform whether interpreted or compiled. The only problem would be third party libraries (like socket vs. winsock on windows), although it should be possible to install libraries cross-distro.
