2) Let's say that after I entered Taiwan on day 182, I worked for some period of time less then a year, then left Taiwan. Since I in no way would have worked for a whole year, would I still be on the hook for the 20% somehow?
3) Let's say I enter with a tourist visa before day 183, but go on a visa run after day 183 to re-enter on an ARC. Does my visa run "restart the clock" and force me into the 20%?

No. All that matters is whether you were here for more than 183 days in the year. You can break it up as you like.
