This is rather confusing.
Wallet.dat = the file containing the private keys in a format usable by bitcoin core. If you backup this file, you can easily re-install your pc without losing your coins (you need a VERY recent backup, since bitcoin core generates new addresses all the time).

Blockchain.info = company that lets you generate online wallets.

You can export all used private keys from bitcoin core and import them onto blockchain.info, but i wouldn't recommand it. The other way around: you can export your keys from your blockchain.info wallet and import them into core (not really recommanded either)

No you can no longer directly upload the file, enter the password and have all keys imported. You can however do the process (exporting and importing) yourself. At least with bc.i wallet v1, I dont know about v2.

IMHO bc.i is somewhat to blame for the confusion. The page[1] is still online, but is throwing generic errors.

I dont think there is an online wallet that offers this. You can export the keys though and import them into any wallet that allows you to import WIF[1] keys
