If you want to keep the conduit dry, I’d avoid the holes at the bottom, as described. Water will seek its own level when the ground is saturated to the elevation of the pipe and you’d have an open...

I mark the hole on the front and back of the tile. I use a 4” grinder with a diamond wheel and first plunge cut from the face. Then finish up from the rear.

So far, I can tell that you can fur out the studs to the 5’ long wall on the back side of the tub, if needed. But the plumbing wall and the wall opposite are questionable because I can’t see if...

Should you? That’s entirely up to you. If it’s relatively easy to move, I’d do it. But you can keep that existing location and simply slope all of your floor up on a 1/4” per foot slope away from the...
