It appears that the default versioning settings for OneDrive are for 500 major versions.  Is there a way to reduce this default globally?  It doesn't appear so via the GUI but was wondering if perhaps there was a way to set this via powershell?

AFAIK, there is not a centralized way to track upload problems for all the users in a tenant

You should also be able to check in/out directly from the Office apps.

@Juan Arlos, Are you able to use it with Team Sites Libraries ? mind to share how you configured ?
Do you have configured SPO tenant to use the new sync client? I'm using it at my corporate tenant and no needs to modify the registry in order to be able to use it

basically you should switch to NGSC whenever you can.
You can manually enable the SharePoint library sync via Registry edit. - https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Enable-users-to-sync-SharePoint-files-with-the-new-OneDrive-sync-client-22e1f635-fb89-49e0-a176-edab26f69614
