Thermostats don't keep a home at exactly the set temperature. They turn the heat/cool on at the set temp +/- a couple degrees, and turn the heat/cool off at the set temp +/- a couple degrees. Some thermostats allow you to adjust the range at which they react.

I'm not sure where you got the idea that it was ever common practice to connect neutral to ground, but it's just not true (other than at the service equipment that it).

comment Can I connect two wires to a single screw terminal in my HVAC system?
If you're an Electrician, connecting two wires to a single screw terminal is wrong. If you're an HVAC technician, it's common practice.

Why do you want to connect the neutral and ground so badly? There's no reason to do it, so just don't do it. If you're using the neutral (e.g. you're feeding 120 volt loads), you'll have current on the grounding conductor of they're connected.

They'll shrink and swell with every change in temperature and/or humidity.

If you're using a double pole GFCI breaker, it will protect both 240 and 120 volt circuits.

Yes, if you also need to power 120 volt loads, you can connect them between one of the ungrounded (hot) conductors and the grounded (neutral) conductor. Just keep in mind though, you'll have to use conductors that are sized appropriately based on the over-current protection.

Maybe. Can't say for sure from this side of the Internet.
