comment How to cut drywall over stud?
The thought is that if you used horizontal strips on the top and bottom, they can twist or rock when you apply force to the edge of the patched piece, resulting potential cracking. Using a long vertical piece should help prevent this as it is distributed over a longer distance perpendicular to the seam. For the best result, extend well past the hole allowing for multiple screws into the existing drywall at the top and bottom.

@Mazura - Completely agree. I think this portion of tube is part of the fridge. I've asked this in the question comments as well as provided a link to what might be the replacement tube part.

Is this tube part that came with the fridge or is it the water line that connects the fridge to your domestic water? I ask because the 5/16 seems like an odd size. Have you looked at this: appliancepartspros.com/lg-tube-pe-5210ja3004k-ap4445606.html

The tube label says that the outside dimension is 5/16 which seems like an odd size. Most hardware centres would carry 1/4 or 3/8 outside dimension fittings, not sure how available 5/16 fittings will be.

The writing on the tube says that the material is polyethylene (PE) with an outside diameter of 5/16" (O.D5/16), and an inside diameter of 0.216" (I.D0.216"). It is rated for up to 170PSI (170P=) at 70°F (70F). It meets the requirements for plastic used with food (NSF-51) as well as drinking water (NSF-61). I believe that DMT is the manufacture.

comment Shower floor slope
I can't comment as to why your's has cracked; it could be a bad product, or a bad installation. As for the membrane layer, you'll need to search for what's available online or in your area. Different repair kits will come with different size patches. Shopping assistance is off topic, and I've never done this type of repair myself, however with the above information you should be able to source out something that will address your issue.
