    You don't need the second "to".

    I think we can say: 1.try to do,
    2. try and do,
    3.try to do and to do ,
    4.try to do and do
    Why must we omit the second to in 3.?
    Thanks!

    You don't have to omit it in your original sentence, it's just not necessary.

    No, I mean the sentence in your original post. #3 is not a sentence.
