You can compile (most) Visual Studio solutions directly on Mono using  
xbuild from the terminal or the MonoDevelop IDE. There are Windows  
versions for both.

However, binaries compiled on .Net can run on Mono without issue - and  
vice versa - provided you don't rely on any unimplemented features and  
don't use p/invokes.
