The directive allow-hotplug has nothing to do with Network-Manager. The NM
only handles network devices NOT mentioned in /e/n/interfaces.
If allow-hotplug is obsoleted or not I don't know. But it is handles by
ifupdown. And if there is a network connected to the device or not.
And no, NM isn't needed and should not be used on a server.

What to use of eth0 or eth1 depends on the hardware and what name udev
gives the device.
