comment When to use “Der Reis” and when “Das Reis”?
As a native speaker, I never heard of 'das Reis' before ('Reisig' is familiar before). If somebody would have asked me the question in person, I probably would have said that 'das Reis' is a plain mistake.

comment How to say “now a days…” / “nowadays” in German?
I don't have the impression that it becomes uncommon to distinguish between Heute and Heutzutage, but it's true that the two words are almost synonymous heutzutage (pun intended) in the actual context which is something like "Frueher war X, heute ist Y." i.e. it's very clear that heute does not actually mean the current day, but it contrasts with Frueher.

Heute has a slightly different meaning as well, it emphasizes the today i.e. it may well be different tomorrow. Heutzutage references a larger time span (more like "these days").
