2. Not with the Ren 64 and the remote ssrs. You can "Daisychain" things if you use a Renard with onboard relays, such as the Ren 16 or 24. Alternatively a DMX system would do the same. But the Ren 64 is designed to utilize the remote ssrs.
3. Yes and no. The "hot" or black conductor from the 120v feed goes to the screw terminal on the ssr board. The neutral or white conductor does not connect to the "ground". The neutral wire connects to the neutral conductors of the output cords or light strings off the ssr pcb with a wire nut or other mechanical connection, just like a standard electrical connection.
4. You are correct about the "hot" conductors for the 4 channels. As to the neutrals refer back to answer 3.
