I have that too. Have to force stop and reopen
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

No, uninstalling and reinstalling will not erase your chats. When reinstalling just select restore chats from backup.

WhatsApp auto backs up every night at 2 AM to internal storage. As long as you don't factory reset your phone, you're good to go.

I beg to differ. It always backs up. Sometimes the restore doesn't use the latest backup though. That has happened to me even though I manually backed up right before.
