can we install oracle driver/client without Java?

Oracle Client - the "thick" one - has own JRE embedded, it is used to run GUI management tools. If you do not need it, download and install Oracle (thin) Instant client


Sure. You have to install JDK current version. You may also have to install ODAC to run ORACLE in Windows. I must say that it is a little bit hard to run ORACLE in windows.
