Nothing wrong with touching below the nipples on BP. In fact, I consider just below the pecs to be probably ideal. The forearms should be fairly vertical at the bottom.
When you say "maybe need to tighten abs more" I want to yell, "if you CAN tighten your abs more, then YES, YOU SHOULD be tightening more. Abs along with back, chest, everything. Expand your belly as you take your breath, then tighten it all as much as you can. Maintain the tightness throughout the lift, even when exhaling.
The gallon of water a day thing is not any kind of a hard and fast rule. Drink so that you're not thirsty, and so that your urine isn't concentrated.
