2.) Why does the manner of Ophelia's burial cause so much comment?
Because nobody is sure if her death was cause by suicide or not. She's given a Christian burial because she is very rich and the King suggested she'd be buried there.
12.) What does Hamlet mean when he says "...by the image of my cause, I see/ the portraiture of his...?
Hamlet is pretty much saying that by the image of my cause, I can see myself in him. Him meaning he can see his reflection in Claudius. The Two compare Claudius killed Old Hamlet and Young Hamlet killed Polonius.
