comment Kommasetzung bei Verb + Infinitiv
Wenn du "um zu" verwendest, ist ein Komma immer obligatorisch. Der erste Satz räumt aber ein, es gebe Ausnahmen dazu. Ist aber nicht so.

comment Wie sagt man “Well-stated questions” and “formal answers” auf Deutsch?
At least it should be a participle, which would be "gestellte" and not "stellt".

comment Is there a comprehensive searchable or online dictionary with regex support?
German to German? What's that? Are you looking for a dictionary which is mono- and bilingual? What do you need regular expressions for? For looking up phrases? Even then you might find all expressions with a particular word by just typing this word. Can't see what regex is good for in that case. Or did you mean to find a corpus. Furthermore, Merriam-Webster provides several dictionaries. But I don't know any M-W online dictionary which provides English-German. But what they do provide is a learner's dictionary with simplified explanations and examples. So, what's it exactly you're looking for.

comment Beobachten + preposition? Auf? bei?
Well, clinch made a point saying that bei has not much to do with the verb. That's true, as you can say "bei jemandem auf etwas achten".
