Hi, will try to answer your questions.
1) the fast is broken when a husband feeds his wife water
2) a mahaepisode is a 1 hr episode on weekends. The shows have one on a rotation basis
3) sindoor is worn only by married women.
4) arranged marriages are still very much a part of indian culture. Dowry - in the real sense is what is called stree dhan (woman's wealth). It is given by the girls family for her. But it has been corrupted and boys families sometimes make demands of money, jewelry etc. from the girls family and it can cause huge problems for girls families.
Hope this clarifies some doubts in your mind
