Student or Learner
I read the sentence 'I've never heard Ken criticize anyone since I've known her' from Martin Hewing's ADVANCED GRAMMAR IN USE (2004 edition) CD ROM.
My questions are:
1. Could we say 'I've never heard Ken criticized anyone since I know him' like in the expression 'since I can remember'?
2. And does 'since I've known her' sound better than 'since I got to know him'?
I was hoping native English teachers could help me with these questions.
Thank you very much.

Are you sure this is right?
It looks as though it ought to read:
I've never heard Ken criticize anyone since I've known him.
The answers to your questions:
#1 No, you can't.
#2 Yes, it does.
