In bitcoin it's bad to reuse addresses (less security, as public key has already been revealed), how about ethereum? Is the public key revealed when the first transaction (first nonce) is used?

As long as your private key is safe you are okay in both bitcoin and ethereum, and yes your ethereum adresses are hashes of public keys, so the actual public key will be revealed once you sign something with the keys
