…is there a resource that describes typical rights?
Yep, it's called *“copyright” law. Every country has one, including the United States.
That law draws the framework of "typical" rights and obligations for all parties involved. Yet, most of the time, that's not where it stops since authors and publishers will protect some of their rights based on those intellectual property rights. In the end, readers like us tend to end up reading publisher licenses, DRM specifics, and agreements that are sometimes different from sales-point to sales-point, depending on the publisher and/or distributor.
Related to your 4 questions, I can only state what most of us will have to state: I am not a lawyer! So, to keep us both legally safe, I will refrain from answering those. Especially, since the answers to those question may very well be totally different, depending on the books you are talking about, who published them, and under what (legal) conditions you have rented, bought, and/or licensed the individual books.
In case of doubt, ask the people at the point-of-sale about your rights and obligations. Most of the time, you'll notice they're rather open when answering such questions. But if that doesn't satisfy you and you really want to know specific details for sure, you should get legal advise from a professional… a laywer.
