The verb needs a preposition: "Let us know of any concerns." -- the if is unnecessary when any is used. HTH.

"For nothing would I betray you" (sounds a bit Shakespearean, though) is what the first statement means.

This isn't a grammar issue, but a style question.

comment Do I need these commas in the case below?
You are right. The question is very well justified. Do we need Oxford commas? Yes, and No. In the first sentence above, the Oxford comma helps to group together the noun phrases and facilitates reading and comprehension. In the second, It mere helps break the monotony of the long sentence without introducing a grammatical error or effecting readability. So yes, it's fine to use these commas here. But no, some purists (and style guides, especially) may strike down the use of any comma before the conjunction and, no excuses. Check your style manual.
