division and subtraction

No, changing order of vectors in subtraction give different resultant so commutative and associative laws do not apply to vector subtraction.

Addition and multiplication

yes, because an integer is a positive or negative, rational, whole number. when you subject integers, you still get a positive or negative, rational, whole number, which means that under the closure property of real numbers, the set of integers is closed under subtraction.
