1. Why does it in effect need a blank like at the end of the text cell 
to wrap properly?

2. Why does it wrap when the rightmost text is many inches from the 
right edge?

I basically never use it and wonder if I'm doing something wrong. (It 
wouldn't be the first time!) Also is there a way to default it to off?

3. I changed the default (* comment *) color to red because the original 
one is almost invisible on my screen. Now when I want to change the 
color of part of a comment, the whole thing changes to blue. ???

In general I find that the more Mathematica tries to help me with text 
formatting, the more I hate its efforts. (I find the same problem, but 
to a lesser extent, with MS Word.) Unsolicited advice to text 
application programmers: stop trying to help me except in obvious and 
really necessary ways.
