    I’m not sure about 1, but on number 2 I would have just written “she is disguising her face from the rest of the world behind a veil AND obscuring her true identity” because the sentence sounds very strange with punctuation there.

For the quote, I would write In the line “my state is desperate for my master’s love”, Viola believes that her transvestim is like Satan disguising himself as a serpant of Genesis and that because of the way she has disguised herself, she is causing both herself and olivia pain.I think that would read ok.
