I think Dandoucette is correct. This is a Ficus. I just don't know which one.

Yes, they are connected to the tree but most trees flower and fruit from the ends of their branches. Most (or all I'm not sure) figs flower and fruit on their trunk. I've seen many figs like this.

so they are not at all connected to the tree?

I'd say these are a type of fig, Ficus. They fruit from the trunk like this.
