When you give rep, whether + or -, you have the option to give zero: I just tried it out. While it seems like a good idea to be able to say I approve/disapprove of a post but that it is not worth a full point, there is a possible bad use of it: to spam zero rep around so you can keep repping one particular person. Thus it could be used as a utility to facilitate flame wars. I don't see that it has much other purpose.

I review all the rep regularly. If someone did that, I would notice. Once noticed, I would correct it, probably by deleting all the rep they had given, and either talking to them about it or just blocking them from using the rep system in future.

Well-said. It is not a problem; thought it worth pointing out as a hypothetical. Zero rep has the additional use of allowing an unfair rep point to be deleted with the comment left intact. Raccoons fret over such persnickety details. We are semi-hibernatory and sometimes have too much spare time on our hands.

It was (intentional) on the old forums so I think it is the same now.

Does that mean you can't give out any rep at all if you have received a neg rep? Or is it only if your rep is below 0?

Just if it is below zero. Lots of people with decent repcounts have had negrep.
