comment How are we polite without using “bitte”?
I believe, one of the reasons why we often don't use "bitte" in such a case is, that it could lead to a conversation like this: Clerk: "Bitte?" (= "How can I help you?") Customer: "Ich hätte gern drei Brötchen bitte." Clerk: "Bitte!" (= "Here you are.") If you ever had such a conversation, it makes you feel a bit weird...

comment Recommended ways to learn the cases?
Well, you could roughly translate "Wer?" (Nominativ) into "Who/what was the actor?", and "Wen?" (Akkusativ) into "Who/what was the target of an action?". For "Wessen?" (Genitiv) it's most often "Whose?" (English often uses the apostrophy, as in "your brother's..."), and for "Wem?" (Dativ), it's most often: "Who does it belong to?" (but this is probably the most imprecise translation of the four, so maybe ask it last) - I really believe, that these English versions of the questions should still match most of the cases.
