    The air in the garage will be cold unless it's heated, garages are supposed to be draughty to avoid condensation.

    Not seen any, only weather strips for the door base to prevent leaf little and rain blowing in.

    As foxhole says, don't try to seal your garage, they need good ventilation.
    In saying that, their is no reason why you can't drop a baffle down to reduce the straight through flow.
