I believe the switch is not connected to the gfci and I don't believe there is a load side to the gfci but I have never used one. It seems it would defeat some of its usefulness if the switch was connected to the load.

The switch isn't connected internally, but alll the ones I've seen have load side screws you could power the switch from

It depends how you wire it.

All of the ones I have seen have the two common screws connected, and in order to make the switch gfci protected you would have to break the portion that connects the two screw tabs and feed the switch from the load side of the gfci.

Tell me the brand and we can look it up, but I still say the switched load is GFCI protected. It's the load side of the GFCI, it just happens to be switched.

Maybe not all brands are the same.. but the one Ive seen the load is protected.
