I've use my Velocity points to claim a reward seat in Economy from MEL-LAX and also from LAX-MEL in Business. Will I receive points and status credits from these 2 sectors?

Unfortunately you will not receive points or status credits for thoes two flights.
Generally for all frequent flyer programmes the world over, outright reward bookings are not mileage/point/status credit accruable.

Doesn't happen very often as far as I know but every now and then there are promotions which provide points for reward flights!
