Thanks.
What does
as many times before and many more in the future,[..]
mean?
Is it an idiom?

It means just what it says - the writer states that something has happened many times in the past and predicts it will happen many times in the future - for example "[Black lost by taking the pawn on b2 with his queen] as many times before and many more in the future"

"we should not embrace Plan B (10 points), although objectively it doesn't change the position's evaluation too much."
Here agaim objectively means that the evaluation could be changed by some other factors?

It probably means that the result of the game will be the same with Plan B as Plan A with best play. With Plan A it will be easy to find the best moves. With Plan B it will be difficult to find the best moves. So you avoid Plan B because you're more likely to go wrong.

It means, the position is drawish, so I must put up with it. Objectively means it is a fact, not affected by what you think about it.

What does the comment after

27 ... Qg3! 28.Ne1 Nh5?!
mean that
The idea is obvious, but 28 ... Ne2 ! 29 f4 Qxe3 30 Nxe2 Bf6! -/+ is more forceful. ?

How does it differ from strong?

You should recheck either the diagram or the annotation, as Ne1 is not a legal move.

It means the same thing. Seize sounds a bit more drastic.
