I can't recall ever hearing or noticing the idiom "and how!"

I believe the intonation of "and how!" goes down at the end because this is not a question, it is just a confirmation of what was just said.

I have hear the interjection "yay" spoken by native speakers many times.

it was yay big! = era grandão!

he was yay drunk = ele estava muito bebado.

A) I have tickets for the U2 show!
B) Yay!!!!!
