4) I think instead of nor use neither.
8) I would personally phrase it as: Neither my brother or I can go swimming.
I'm just basing these corrections off of how I would speak it (native speaker). Hope this helps. :)

Oops I meant nor for number 8. Sorry! :/ It goes 'either, or' and 'neither, nor'.

Mary is incorrect about 4. If you use "neither," you'll create a run-on. With "nor" you have a correct compound sentence.
