comment How does one correctly use “q.v.”?
My favourite example, from the Kurt Vonnegut novel Jailbird. The President's Special Advisor on Youth Affairs summarises his unread hundreds of weekly reports in one telegram: "Young people still refuse to see the obvious impossibility of world disarmament and economic equality. Could be fault of New Testament (quod vide)."

comment “Does it make sense?” or “Do you understand me?”?
I think this is a useful and important question. It's a shame it was closed.

comment When is it appropriate or disrespectful to refer to someone as “she”?
There's a satisfying video in which Russell Brand calls out new anchors for referring to their guest the third person "You're talking about me as if I'm not here... You shouldn't say 'he' when a person is present. You should refer to that person by their name. That's basic good manners."

Whether to use 'whom' is subjective.
