Very few fonts have a strict 2:1 ratio for non-Western vs Western characters, among them Sarasa Mono (https://github.com/be5invis/Sarasa-Gothic) and Source Han Sans (https://github.com/adobe-fonts/source-han-sans). I don't know any other; I'm also unsure of the licensing of these fonts, all I know is they are open-source and free for personal use. As for the DejaVu:OtherFont ratio, that is unpredictable.

I'm not sure. I just read and type everything in Gmail and it seems to work.
