comment Why picture is not clear?
Export an EPS of the graphic. Make sure the "Selection" checkbox is checked on the export dialog so you don't have a ton of whitespace around the graphic. Any TeX distribution from the last few years should either use the EPS as-is, or automatically convert it to a PDF as required.

comment Sharelatex 'swallows' 80 pages of my work when compiling pdf
It will be difficult to impossible for others to diagnose your problem as-is. Whether you keep using sharelatex or find another TeX install, you'll need to make a copy of your thesis, and start systematically commenting out chapters, sections and other lines until you get to the simplest possible document that shows the problem. During that process, you may find the root cause of your problem. If not, you'll have a document that stands a chance of being examined and fixed.

comment Remove “Chapter #” string from bibliography?
Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem.

comment Set up MacTex distribution as default on mac os
It should "just work". MacTeX adds /usr/texbin to your path, which contains all the usual executables (and is what TeXshop actually runs). Those executables should know where the MacTeX packages are, and anything you wrote in TeXshop should work with vim. Where are you having problems?

That is more correct in the general case, but for a single character, aren't they equivalent?
