When my parents came for a visit for five days, I slept on the sofa.

Since I am talking about a particular visit, can I use 'the visit'? I know 'the visit' is not natural but I couldnt reason.

Thanks.

Take your belongings with you when you’re leaving.

Bring implies movement towards someone or something.
Take implies movement away from someone or something.

Even after the usage rule, I couldn't reason why 'take' is right choice in the above sentence. Some explanation would help me.
with thanks.

The movie is based on a book written (wrote) by JK Rowling.

Why is "wrote" wrong and "written" the right one in the sentence?

sentence 1: Please help me correct the following piece of writing for vocabularies, grammars.
Sentence 2: Please help me correct the following piece of writing for vocabulary and grammar.

Are both sentence right?
Sentence 2 seems to be right for me, but I don't know why it is better.

Thanks for the help.
