Don't know about your version and whether you have a dedicated or a
hosted-engine setup but in my case I have both types running and don't
experience any crashes, running a dedicated 3.4.3 engine(s)

Sofar everything OK

Not needed. If you have created your networks then goto to the hosts
tab, select your host, select the Network Interfaces tab and hit Setup
Host Networks.
You'll get a window where you can drag and drop your defined networks to
an interface and define properties for them.

I use theForeman for that and it works perfectly.

No problem with the questions, oVirt tries to solve a complex problem
and sometimes its easy to forget that one had the same problems a whole
while back :-)
