Equity is the same, but the chance that you come away with some portion of the pot is not.

Yes - the standard procedure is to burn cards. I'll update the answer.

comment NL600: River Decision OOP vs Thinking Regular At Very Wet Board
Against your worst case range of flushes, sets, trips, and some straight draw+pair hands {TT-88,AcKc,AcQc,AcJc,AcTc,Ac7c,Ac6c,Ac5c,A4s,Ac3c,Ac2c,KcQc,KcJc,KcTc,QJs,J9s+,‌​T8s+,97s+,87s,76s,6c5c,QJo,JTo} you have 30% equity. You can profitably call a bet up to $60. Frankly, I think that sets, flushes, and straights are a smaller portion of his range than the other hands, and our equity is actually much better. If I get rid of the low straight, 1 set and 5 flushes, our equity is 39%, meaning we can call a bet up to about $100 profitably.

A semi-bluff relies on the ability to make a better hand on a future street. One the river, a bluff is a bluff. Further, I feel that keeping your hand from being shown is a terrible reason to bet. You really think that having this guy know that you defended your BB with ATo and then bet the turn is going to help him?
