Re works/faith and the relationship to salvation (your point 2, and perhaps point 3): see this question

comment In modern times, what would happen to a Roman Catholic monk if he were to violate his monastic vows?
Just to be certain, you are asking specifically what the ecclesiastical penalties are for a religious breaking his vows?

comment Is Latin considered a more holy language in the Catholic church?
There may be a grain of truth in this, but Latin is certainly in current use. Not only is every Church document written in Latin (and then translated), it's even in use in modern, ephemeral media.

comment For Catholics who object to Vatican II, what are the key issues?
FSSP - Priestly Fraternity of St Peter; SSPX - Society of St Pius X; SSPV - Society of St Pius V; CMRI - Religious Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen; I don't know what NFP, BoD and BoB refer to.

comment Why did the Catholic Church change so radically after Vatican II in regards to the status of Jews?
"It's said that..." Given that this entire question is predicated on "it's said that...", it would be really helpful to know who said that or where it's stated.

comment Does the Catholic Church still stand behind Isaiah 14:21?
I think the verse should be read in the context of the whole chapter. It's referring to the King of Babylon (who may even be associated with the antichrist).

comment How are first-grade relics prepared?
Paragraph 237 of the linked Directory on Popular Piety and the Liturgy is actually relevant to the question and deserves to be quoted, although it doesn't go into the detail the question appears to want.

comment Did Mary have other children?
This answer is useful, but the two paragraphs right at the end seem out of place in discussing perpetual virginity (and more suitable for the Immaculate Conception and the Assumption).

comment Is the Catholic Church NOT against all birth control?
It should also be noted that Benedict XVI's comments were not in the context of asking about birth control.

comment How do Catholics and Eastern Orthodox justify their clergy praying with those big hats on their heads?
The danger with quoting the 1917 Code of Canon Law is the provision of Canon 6 §1 in the 1983 Code.
