1) PDF icon displacement issue:
I have good news that the misplacement with the Grid PDF export icon is internally fixed as noted at https://github.com/telerik/kendo-ui-core/issues/2243 and it will not occur in the next SP1 version.
The workaround for the Grid is to apply the following CSS class:
: -292px -244px
as shown in the following screenshot: http://screencast.com/t/bV1plf7ezlu
2) Export to Excel error - The error you received is related to the jQuery version you are using in the project. Please download jQuery version 1.12.3, reference it in your project and this should resolve the error you received when you export to excel.
