kitchen electrical questions

Existing under sink 4-plex receptical (not sure its on one or two circuits, well check later) serves:
Garbage disposer Dish washer Hot water dispenser
On a kitchen remodel what electrical outlet need to be dedicated?
Garbadge disposer? Dish washer? Trash compactor? Hot water dispenser? Refrigerator?
The existing above counter receptacles is on one GFI circuit, does the new NEC code require it be on two dedicated circuits?
In removing the electrical double oven, I found the ground and neutral from the oven were connected together to the feeder neutral. The existing feeder is 3 black wires (2 hot, 1 neutral) plus a bare ground. Does it seem odd that the ground wire from this service was cut back at the junction box and both appliance ground and neutral were tied to feeder neutral? The main circuit breaker panel is grounded so there is no reason not the use the feeder ground, right?

Your oven was wired correctly and as you described the current code would require separating the neutral and the ground Your counter outlet doesn't need two circuits, however your counter outlet(s) require at least two 20 amp circuits Your list of under counter stuff, depends on the amperage of the circuits and the amperage required by the device.

After you make sure it was wired correctly at the breaker box, there is no reason not to use the ground. You are lucky the electrician anticipated the new code. Mine is just 3wire.

None of the above.

Yes.
That's a Code violation. They're required to be separate.

That's a Code violation, too... the neutral wire is supposed to be white or gray.

Correct on all counts.
