    Not a teacher.

    I would rather say:
    - put/pay/deposit money into a bank account
    - take/get money out of a bank account.

    "To withdraw money from a bank account" is OK.

    Re: bank account

    We always put money in and take it out.

    We also deposit money (when we put it in) and withdraw it (when we take it out).
