You can do that, but if the fabric has a large gap with no support it may not hold very well.

If you can post a picture of the area you're referring to, it may generate some ideas.

If those tile are beveled on the end and you cut them in place, they'll probably stand out even more than of you just left them.

What are they bonded with?

A good way to isolate the leak (plumbing vs. shower) is to flood test it. Plug the drain and fill it from an alternate water source. Let it sit for a day and check for leaks.

Actually I got to wondering, why would you need corners on a Kerdi corner bench against Kerdi board?

Yeah, I missed the part about tiling the whole wall. I'd use mesh tape and mortar for the corners. It helps to crease the tape where it wraps around the corners so it doesn't come loose.

Your bench shouldn't be on the tray. The tray should be cut around it.

If that makes the bench too short, you could build it up with plywood or 2x's.

So is the drain next to the curb?

You can stack Kerdi board as high as you need to for water retention, or just for your own satisfaction.
