    4) I am living in a house in 400-hundred-square-foot.

    I would say "I live in a 400-square-foot house".

    It depends. If your mum is absolutely half French and half Chinese (ie one parent was totally French, and the other totoally Chinese) then you can say "My mum is half-French and half-Chinese".

    If you don't want to specify the proportions, then Sentence 2 is fine, or you could say "My mum is part French and part Chinese."
