New A9 owner with a couple of questions

I have a couple of questions. Love the camera so far aside from the ergonomics needing a little improvement (huge hands).

When shooting A priority with my Nikon D750, I would set the aperture and then the shutter speed would fluctuate accordingly. In broad daylight and at f2.8, it may be 1/800 and at sunset, it could drop to 1/30 or lower. With the Sony, I had Auto ISO set using AP but the shutter wouldn't go above 1/30, even in full sun.

Also, I was shooting an outdoor party last night (as an attendee) and I had a hard time getting focus on a number of occasions. There was plenty of light and I was using AF-C and wide. I’d compose and the multiple focus points would turn into a rectangle almost like it was switching to center focus. I feel like I missed focus on 20% off my shots.

Any assistance would be great. Thanks.
