A: The first sentence is a remark about the mountain's appearance. This statement might refer to a mountain you saw two weeks ago, yesterday, or maybe earlier today.

"Seeing it from a distance, that mountain looks like Mt. Fuji."
(added it, subject it == the mountain that looks like Mt. Fuji)
This second sentence is only said when you are looking at the mountain that looks like Mt. Fuji. If you are not looking at the mountain right now, you are not "seeing it from a distance" right this moment. (今、山に見ている )

A: To keep a respectable distance is to be far enough away from something that it won't cause problems for someone / something else. A respectable distance isn't the same for each thing; rather, it's a distance that you feel should be appropriate in order to not become a hinderance.

To keep a discreet distance would be staying so far away from something that you are unnoticed.

Other questions about "Distance"

Q: I have to travel a long distance for the training session. That's ridiculous. does this sound natural?
A: You could say that, but I feel like that specific idea is more likely communicated by an American as, "I have to travel ridiculously far for this training." "Distance" is s bit of a technical word, and isn't used often conversationally. Also, traveling far for a training isn't necessarily ridiculous, because there's no telling what you think "far" is. But, "ridiculously far" paints a better picture for the listener -- that you have to travel a stupid distance for just a training.
Q: "what long distance do you think we need between the two"? does this sound natural?
A: did u mean "how long/far the distance between the two that we need?" ?
*죄송한데 솔직히 전 이해할수 없습니다 --"
Q: distance student does this sound natural?
A: It's correct, but I'm not sure everyone will know what you mean. "Distance education" sounds kind of funky to me, so I'd probably say "online student" since most distance learning takes place online.
