Qur'an

The Quran (القرآن‎, romanized: al-Qurʼān, literally meaning "the recitation"), also romanized Qur'an or Koran, is the central religious text of Islam, which Muslims believe to be a revelation from God (Allah). It is widely regarded as the finest work in classical Arabic literature. The Quran is divided into chapters (Arabic: سورة sūrah, plural سور suwar), which are subdivided into verses (Arabic: آية āyah, plural آيات āyāt).

It is always highly recommended for every Muslim to recite Quran but when a person is in the state of Janabah or a female is in her menses, it becomes Haraam on them to recite the four verses of the obligatory Sajda. Rest of Quranic verses are always allowed and recommended to recite.
The narration of Makrouh for woman in her menses to recite more than seven verses in case it is authentic, does not mean no reward but less reward from the usual situation of purity.

Wassalam.

Witness is usually taken when there is a dispute between parties and conflict of interests. Witness is a heavy burden which can be difficult on one woman alone. Another woman supporting the first one will make the witness fully accepted.

In fact, it is out of respect for the woman not to leave her face the challenge of the witness alone.

The Prophet Muhammad was granted the maximum knowledge by Allah as it is in Quran (4:113) and was the most knowledgeable in every field of knowledge.

It is wrong to claim that he was unable to read or write. He was sent to teach human being the knowledge of the Book and the wisdom which means that he had all the knowledge.

Shia Islam means following the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWA) narrated by the most pious and most knowledgeable who are Ahlul Bayt (AS) who are the Progeny of the Prophet. Allah (SWT) mentioned in Quran the term Shia for the followers of the Prophets. (And from his (Noah's) Shia was Ebrahim) Sura Al-Saaffaat, verse 83. Quran mentioned (in Sura Al-Qasass, verse 15) a follower of the Prophet Moosa disputing with a person from Moosa's enemies and calls the follower of Moosa as from His Shia.

Bani Israel were not been favoured because of they were from the grand children of those who were with Noah, because in fact all human beings after Noah were from those who were with Noah. Bani Israel were the grand children of Prophet Ya'qoub who was also known as Israel which means in their language : Servant of Allah (Abdullah). The grand children of Yaqoub lived in Egypt then went to other places. Many prophets and kings were from that progeny. Prophets from Bani Israel include Yousuf, Ayyub, Dhul Kifayah, Younus, Dawood, Sulaiman, Musa, Haroon, Zakaria, Yahya, Easa (AS) and many others. Bani Israel (The grand children of Ya'qoub) had pious believers in Allah like the prophets and their sincere followers, and had majority of disobedient community who opposed their own prophets and tortured and even killed some of them.(Sura 2, Verse 87) and (Sura 4, Verse 183).

Allah (SWT) cursed from Bani Israel those who were disobedient (Sura 5, Verse 78).

Majority of Bani Israel did not appreciate the great bounties of Allah on them and went against His orders, that is why we read in Quran many verses in which Allah mentioning the bounties bestowed on Bani Israel and how they never thanked Allah but on the contrary, insisted on disobeying Him and opposing His prophets. They wanted a religion which suits their evil desires and not the religion of Allah.

Repenting from a sin is very important, and that's very good that you have sincerely repented from it, but it does not mean you are able to deny having committed it if confronted about it. Taking a false oath is a major sin, and worse than that is swearing a false oath on the holy Quran. 

As for saving your honour, you need to weigh out what the situation is, and what kind of consequences there will be for revealing this sin, or whether there will be detremental damage to you, or harm. 

It might be advisable that you somehow change the scenario, or do tawriyah, to avoid severe backlash, if that is what the situation will be.

With prayers for your success.

Many scholars of Tafseer say that Allah (SWT) called the Prophet Muhammad as O Messenger in very important matters which are related to conveying the message of Islam (Osool Al-Deen) while called him as O Prophet in matters which are related to day to day rules and regulations (Foroo' Al-Deen).

Yes of course. Acceptance of every worship depends on the sincerity in the intention.

Menstruating female is allowed to perform all worship e.g. Thikr of Allah, Du'a, reading Quran (except the four verses of obligatory Sojood). She is not allowed to pray any Salah nor perform Tawaf around Ka'ba nor stay in Masjid.

Saving your life and/ or life of others is obligatory. If the only way to save life is taking false oath, then it might be permissible if there are no other Islamic reason against it.

Saving honour has many degrees which must be considered before replying this part of your question. We need to understand the real situation first, then reply can be researched according to Islamic rules.
