Regarding your transit visa query - I didn't require one. I had to change planes at Amsterdam and was at the airport for 8 hours. Unless you leave the airport you shouldn't need one. I'd recommend you call your airline and clarify just to be safe.

I don't see how the departure date on your I-94 can extend beyond the validity of your visa. The officer at your port of entry checks your visa before stapling the I-94 to your passport. Maybe someone else can help you with this one. I'm clueless.

DEFINITELY buy health insurance. It'll only cost you between 2k-5k for a few months. Totally worth it!
Here's a good place to start - https://www.icicilombard.com/travel-...Round-Trip.cms

Health insurance is a major component of the travel insurance. There are some other things included in that as well.
I bought my health insurance from that company the last two times I visited. Its just convenient. You could try searching for other companies which offer just health insurance of course..
