    They are basically interchangeable.

    b) to rob and to steal
    Generally I would rob a person or a place and in the process I would steal an object.
    "Scarface robbed the bank and managed to steal one million dollars from the safe."

    There may be others who have better examples.

    Re: differences in following

    That seems like a perfect differentiation between rob and steal.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
