4. When joining nouns with Type-5 suffixes by conjunctions, the suffixes must be repeated, right?: *be'vaD loDvaD je*, *raSDaq quSDaq ghap* etc. Is there any canonical explanation about it?

Yes, each noun must have the suffix. It has been done in canon — for instance, the copyright on Skybox Cards: Paramount Pictures malja' permey bIH Star Trek pong'e' Deghmey'e' je. Explanation? I don't think it has been formally explained to us, but the reason seems clear to me: each noun (phrase) being conjoined is separately a location, topic, cause, etc., and so must be separately marked.
