Synonyms of "Stay" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between stay up to date with and stay abreast of and be first to hear of and be aware ?
A: The first two are nearly identical. The first is in more common usage.

"First to hear" is more active. This would be the person that passed the information on to the people that are only "staying up to date".

Be aware is not wrong in this usage but I wouldn't expect to see it often. it implies someone even further down the list.

"First to hear" runs out and tells people that want to "stay up to date". Then " stay up to date" may mention it to the "be aware" crowd sometime later.
Q: What is the difference between outside (ex: stay outside) and out there(ex: stay out there) ?
A: It really depends on context.

"Outside" can mean literally outside, or just outside an area or a room.

Examples:

"Let's go outside and ride our bikes."

"I'm going to be outside the room if you need me."

"You need to stay outside this area."

"Out there" is used when referring to a place or location that is not where you are at that moment.

Examples:

"Stay out there! I don't want you in here yet!"
(Could be telling someone not to come into a room.)

"She's out there somewhere."
(We don't know where she is, but she's not here where we are.)

"We should go out there!"
(We should go to the place that's not here. It could be just the room next door or it could be downtown.)

Both phrases are used to indicate a place or location not where we are. How far away that location is can be unknown or given through context. Also the nature of "outside" is also determined by context.
Q: What is the difference between stay to his cabon and stay in his cabin ?
A: They pretty much mean the same thing. However, "stays to his cabin" has a stronger feeling of never coming out. It does sound a bit strange, though, and is mostly said this way to sound more ignorant, i.e. it isn't grammatical.
Also "Keep to his cabin".
Q: What is the difference between Why can't I stay mad at you? and I can't stay mad at you. ?
A: Questioning the reason that they cannot remain angry with someone versus they are unable to remain angry with someone.
Q: What is the difference between stay at home and stay home ?

Q: How's your stay in China? Let me know when you (get/come/are) back to Vancouver.

*Here are two questions:
- What is the difference between get, come and are in the sentence above?
- And does this sentence sound natural?
Does this sound natural?
A: Note first that with "are" you should use "in Vancouver" instead of "to Vancouver." Moreover you can use it interchangeably with "get back to" and "come back to."

The only nuance that using "come back to" has that the other two don't is that it implies that you, the speaker, are also currently in Vancouver. If I were in Vancouver, then, I would be more likely to say "Let me know when you come back to Vancouver" or "Let me know when you are back in Vancouver."
