Thank you for your attention!
I am confused by the following sentence:
With so much work to do, I can't even make a proper plan.
My question is:
Should "to do" in the sentence be changed into "to be done"? And why?

Both are correct: to do and to be done.
This is an example of a reduced adjective clause with the modal deleted and replaced by the infinitive.
...with so much work that should be done.
...with so much work to be done
...with so much work that I should do
...with so much work to do
We have the same looseness around infinitives with enough and too.
