Morning, do I must to use to after Need. For example: "I need to ask you a question", or "We need to work all together to move forward and fast". Are these two senteces right? What rule we must to follow to use "to" after this verb? I know that if I use need when I want to say "I need you" I avoid the preposition "to". Thanks

When "need" is followed by a verb, you use "to".
(Well, yes, it can be followed by '-ing form', depending on the context.)
