comment 大阪から東京までに泳ごうとしたけど、途中で道に迷います。Does this sound natural/correct?
In this case, I'd personally use 東京にかけて instead of まで.

comment “To the East/West/North/South are distinct [feature-rich] areas that fill the land”
Nice picture, but logically you cannot infer that 東西南北 maps directly to the order of the 森、平原、峡谷、湖 from the way it is written (which you have wrong anyway).

comment “The earlier we leave, the earlier we'll arive”-type construction
Look at the other topic posted in @Flaw's comment. But I'm confused about what you're asking. You say the ~ば~ほど pattern only applies to verbs, but then you list two more examples that also have verbs. Are you specifically looking for instances of using a pattern like this with nouns? Or just confused on it in general?

Is the second sentence an example in your book? Because it sounds wrong to me.
