They're the same for me, I think, except I might pronounce the double l in the second word longer. (as I do when the last letter of the root is the same as the first of the suffix.) So I guess I pronounce wholly like whole-ly, in other words rhyming with |solely| ,whose spelling more correctly matches my pronunciation.

Definately moot, though I'd say that moot is tighter for me than school, which leans towards a dipthong.
