How large and deep is the depression, Jeff? Thinset mortar isn't technically the correct product to use but is still commonly used exactly that way. And since this is your pre slope, where you're not...

1) I would leave the 1/4" gap. Though it shouldn't if it's all sealed properly, you just don't want any moisture that might get there absorbed by the edge of the DW.

Welcome back, Dave,

1) that'll work, but probably not necessary to KF the gap. Kerdi band on the drywall and KF the band to the tub.

2) Yes, ideally the tub "legs" should also be water proofed...

Renee, might be worthwhile to ask such questions within your own thread so we can keep track of all the questions and answers - the history of your project, there.

Clark, the bathroom I recently demo'd had a mosaic tile set directly on plywood. I mostly used 2 different pry bars to tear it apart, a 12" flat one and a 36" long demo/crow bar.

Perfectly fine to embed your cement board into the top mud layer, Shane, and appears to be the preferred way.

I think they're all generally called mixing valves if they are capable of mixing cold water with hot within the valve body. What more modern valves bring to the table is the anti-scald feature;...

Don't disagree, CX, but I've installed only about 400 of those barzillion square feet. Just wasn't comfortable taking a swing at 12X24's given the difficulties at fixing mistakes in a tile install.

Nope. Still comes down to how flat the tiles are, IMO. The 12X24's I used on my master bathroom floor and walls were very flat but I still used a lippage control system.

Being an amateur, too, for...

Thank, Jon. Though I could have done a better job on tile layout, overall it turned out pretty nice.

Denshield already has a moisture barrier on it, so don't want or need to add a second one. The core of DS is gypsum (not unlike drywall) however, so its edges could be susceptible to moisture.
