Either you can have emerging properties of nothing or you can't.
Either there is infinite regress or not, whatever is true (and one or

It depends on whether you think of Nothing as merely an absence of
properties or a complete lack of existence. I believe in the former
case. I don't have problems with infinite regress as I understand that
an actual regress requires infinite "stuff" to be real. Explanation that
push the problem behind a insurmountable curtain are not infinite
regressive, they are merely evasions of the problem. They are attempt to
get people to stop asking hard questions.
I will not ever stop asking questions as I am not afraid of being
wrong or foolish.
