Well the source of the problem can be possible three kinds: a) your skill b) the violin/string (ruling out the bow as you already tried a different one) c) not enough rosin on the string (But I suppose we can rule it out) In order to test for a, have someone else try the same thing. In order to test for b try an entirely different violin. As for a potential ...

For me it is always my left hand accidentally touching the E string (at the base of the first or second fingers where they join the palm), my bow drifting away from the bridge, my bow angle drifting so that it is no longer parallel to the bridge, or the angle of my bow to the string i.e. my bow is sitting too upright so that the bow hairs are not splayed ...

It's likely part instrument, part string. The E string is not wound so it has less grip than the other strings anyway. This can be acerbated by the acoustics of the instrument: some instruments show this more than others. If the E string cuts into the bridge, this will generally also have this sort of effect. My violin maker fits a bit of drum skin (no ...

why the first note on the bottom part has two legs? You're supposed to imagine that there are two parts in the left hand that happen to land on the same G on the first beat. If this piece was sung, for example, one voice might be singing G, Eb, Eb, and the other G, Bb, Bb. On the piano you'll probably end up playing it exactly as you would if that G ...

It's not particularly written well for piano (I guess that's the instrument you are trying to play it on), but look on the top line (all notes on treble clef) as the melody, with up stems, and part accompaniment, with down stems. This then puts the first chord as a 'backing', followed by the tune of another Eb, then F and G. The other notes under will make ...

As noted in the comments, all of this is because there are multiple voicings. Multiple stems mean that multiple voices play/sing those notes, which should address your first two questions. I believe that another voice would be doing the short E-F-G run while the other notes are tied. If you are trying to do this on a single instrument, you would ...
