    2. Is there any way to update my new bank details in UAN login by visiting local EPFO office.(without help of employer as i don’t have good relationship with my employer)?

      By default money will come to account which is linked with EPFO.You can get detail via login to Unified portal.You can give request for updating bank details online. Your employer needs to approve that detail online. Incase it is not getting approved for few months you can contact local EFPO office.
