1. You do not have to worry about disk space with the SD card slot. Add a 128 GB SDXC card (I am sure it will take the bigger one even if they don't say so. I have seen other tablets, phones do that). Pick some amount of space for Win 10, partition it to a new drive with NTFS and then assign that drive to a folder in the C drive. That way, the Win 10 system will see that extra space as part of the disk where you can store programs and what not. And use the rest of the space for Android (and whatever file system it wants).

2. Also, most of these Win 10 tablets (even American made assuming there is some so called) seem to suffer from a quirk in the OS. The OS shuts off many devices to conserve power and they seem to fail to wake up at the proper time leading to "My tablet would not wake up from sleep" syndrome and you have a eWaste or eJunk in your hand. To prevent this from happening, go to device properties and look for a tab called power management and deselect a tab that says "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power". And this takes care of the dead while sleep problem. Yes, the tablet would consume more power and last less with each charge but a tablet that is working is better than a dead one.
3. I would keep the tablet plugged and do not allow complete discharge since the tablet may not recover from fully discharged battery. Again, some problem in the design or the OS.
