comment Style question: Good spacing in (display-)math
I think your choice of spacing for this case is fine. \quad and \qquad and produce standard amounts used in traditional typogarphy. The TeXbook discusses such issues, which is probably why the ams doc's don't feel that they need to cover this again.

comment Is it possible to change the spacing between particular columns of a table?
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us to help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}.

comment \mathsf{} prints digits in serif font
Please provide an MWE. This depends on your font set-up and tex engine. If you use \showoutput the log file will tell exactly which fonts are being used. In a standard article document, the digits inside \mathsf are taken from cmss, the sans serif font, even when they are subscripts.

comment Titles directly below a float is causing spacings below the float to increase
I can't reproduce this. Note that the space before a section is stretchable and will vary with the available space on a page. You might get more uniform results with \raggedbottom

comment Problem with amsmath's `gather` environment
The space at the top is coming from \abovedisplayskip which is vertical space inserted to offset displayed equations from the preceeding text of the paragraph. You can switch off as in tex.stackexchange.com/a/82241/15925. However, it looks to me that your are trying to place text material in the math environment - the numbers look more like labels that part of the equation - so you should think of changing your input format. Also your aligned are superfluous - you have already set fleqn...

comment Problem with amsmath's `gather` environment
You can "balance" the columns by putting a paragraph break before the "gather" make each column equally wrong. The general underlying problem however is that the ams math environments typeset their contents twice to be able to correctly place the equation numbers, and this double pass plays badly with the height measurements "multicol" is trying to work with.

comment Changing the font size
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a simple syntax error

comment Underline/Bold/Highlight multiple names in a bibliography
You should add your code to your original question, via the edit button, rather than to the comments. Also include the relevant part of your bibliography file.

Use \raggedcolumns to fix this - you haven't provided many places for the columns to break...

Better format for the author names in the bib file is Last, First: author = {Smith, Jane and Doe, John}, particularly when names can have "von" parts
