Didn't read everything, but yes follow the rules of the road (signals, merging, passing....). Braking is an issue if not brought up yet, if someone is merging and you can't get over there is no need to hit your brakes. If someone slows down in front of you braking isn't always needed, if you follow at a proper distance. If you car stops working on the highway DO NOT leave it in the fast lane without hazard lights (true story Subaru's response saved my life and thankfully no one was next to me too). Also the highway had no street lights and there was little/no ambient light.
