#1 is far better than #2. Usually, adverbs should be as close to the verb as possible, but not with a phrasal verb and not before the phrasal verb. For #3, I'd just skip "that" or "which" entirely! But if you need to use one, then use "that." ...

The phrase "the zoo" refers to a specific zoo that both girls know about. Frankly, I can't think of an instance in which "the" would not be used with "zoo" in this context. 4 and 7 are not used. The other responses are fine.

Yes, 4 and 6 have the same meaning, although it seems odd to have the abstract word "comments" be the subject of an action verb "made." It's the people who are making the comments, right? If the verb's action is in the past and it's over with, ...

No, nothing specific. "How is it going?" is just a casual question someone might ask when meeting someone in a hallway! There is no particular antecedent for "it."

#1 means that your brother was walking along the river. Placement of the participle phrase needs to be as close as possible to the word it's modifying. Therefore, only 2 and 3 work. However, if you want 1 to have similar meaning to 2 and 3, you should phrase it like this: ...

1, 2 and 3 all mean the same thing. And yes, the comma before "while" is not needed. 4, 5, and 6 all mean the same thing. And yes, the comma before "while" is not needed.

Sentence 4 is very awkward, but the others are fine. The two actions in each sentence are simultaneous, yes. I wouldn't use #4.

Yes, 1 and 2 mean approximately the same thing. 3 - 6 mean the same thing, yes, and there are two actions happening at the same time. Sentence 6, however, is wordy. You don't need the words "at the same time." The meaning is clear without them.
