Export all objects and fields; export ERD

Q: "How do I export the schema (ie, a list of all objects and fields)? How do I export Salesforce's Entity Relationship Diagram (ERD)?"

A: Exporting the schema: Schema Spy is my go-to tool for this. It's a bit of a hassle to install, but it provides both the ERD and the schema, and I can tell it exactly which objects to show.

If you can't get Schema Spy working:
My Synchronizer tool also shows the schema (click the "View All Object & Field Info" button).

I don't know of a free ERD tool apart from Schema Spy (email me if you know of one!). Yup, you can always use Salesforce's built-in Schema Builder, too.
