I haven’t seen the "i" missing but yes, i (in, into) is necessary.

Yes, but I was in two minds whether to use the definite articles or not. Ón bpéin a thagann an neart? (In Ulster: ón phéin a thaganns an neart???) Any strong preferences on that? I think the article would be used when talking about an abstract noun in the most encompassing sense, but I feel there are likely to be dialectal/idiolectal differences on this point.

Yes, adding the definite articles sounds even better, probably in any of the traditional dialects.
