Below are the answers to the questions:
Yes, it does. The locations you have to go to during the game are no predefined areas, it would be impossible to do that for every city of the world. It only matters that you walk in one direction, until the game tells you that you have reached your destination.
No, you don't. The game can not know all bars of the world. When the game tells you to go to the bar, just walk somewhere. When the game tells you that you have reached your destination, it will always be at about the location where you are in that moment.
That highly depends on where you play the game. In big cities, you might only need to walk a few meters. On the countryside, the areas may be several hundred meters apart from each other.
As described on the How does it work?-page, the game uses the ID of the nearest mast of your network provider to track your movements. Because of that, you need to have reception to play the game, otherwise the game (and your mobile phone) would be "blind".
If you see this message even if you do have reception, initiate a call to yourself and end it before the phone really connects. After this, the phone will know the ID of the nearest mast and the game will work.
The game will automatically save your game progress every time you leave the game or go to another area. Therefore, the option to manually save the game is normally not needed, but you can still use it if you feel that you have already done a lot in a room without going to another room.
The story of "The Journey II" starts where part I left off. However, it's no problem if you do not know the first part. If you read the newspaper in the detective bureau at the beginning of the game, you will read a short summary of the story of the first part.
