Programming and coding are quite different fields, you can not combine both into one. Graphic can not generate codes from its graphics but a special thing is, programming can create graphics by its codes, like you are seeing html 5 banners, Action script in Flash, PHP or other programming languages could "draw" amazing dynamic graphics.

I would say it is very important, having at least a basic understanding would benefit your clients and you as you will be able to offer more.

an example from me was a client that just wanted a logo, in the end I re-branded his entire company which included a website.

as a web designer you need the graphic skills anyway so it works both ways

programming/coding and graphic design these two are totally different things. Between these two things very common is programing can produce graphical things by its own, but graphics can not produce coding material. By coding different type of things can be possible like: html5, flash banner etc types of things can be possible. Graphic design can not make any code by its own, these are simple knowledge that i know.
