If you're having trouble clipping in and out without it shaking you to your soul the pedals should be adjusted. There's a tension screw on them that makes the trap hold harder or softer. I like to adjust mine to the minimum needed so that I can lift up semi aggresively without snapping out. That makes it so the shoe can lock in quite easily and it takes only a light twist to snap out. That amount is easily enough for normal street riding.
The saddle sounds like crash damage to me. But if there's no noticable damage on the covering to indicate a really nasty pull I'd say it would be worth trying the warranty route. These things are supposed to be more durable than that. A saddle should be able to take a bash or three from "normal" crashes without the seat pan springing off the support rails. A lack of really obvioius damage to the covering would indicate that you didn't do a really bad crash.
