Do computer parts like the CPU and GPU sort of decrease in performance over time? If so, by how much?

Yep. Here's an article about how overclocking speeds up degradation(the fact that it speeds it up implies that it still happens without it): http://www.anandtech.com/show/2468/6

Yes, every component experiences wear.

It depends on the specific component. How much use it gets etc.

Just to clarify: there is degradation, but you won't really see a decrease in performance in the form of slowdowns, if that's what you meant. But as degradation gets worse, you will start to see random failures (crashes caused by errors within the part) and eventually the part will just stop functioning.
