In my experience the Shuls that are expecting a donation make a special Mi Shebeirach after the Mi Shebeirach of the Aliya. Ultimately those that do not want to or can not afford to donate say Tziva Lvarcham.
Moreh Mikdash brings the following in the name of the Zohar Parshas Achrei Mos. There are 3 things that lengthen our time in Galus. One of them is "She'osim Kolon B'shechina B'galus". The Zohar in Parshas Teruma says that one who speaks in Shul is "Gorem Kolon L'shechina". Thus one who talks in Shul vain talk is lengthening the Galus.
Mainstream Halacha (Rambam, Shulchan Aruch and similar) clearly forbids talking during certain parts of the prayer service - like during the Amida. Other times they permit talking under certain circumstances - like during Shma if one needs to answer a person one fears. Other times talking is technically permitted. If talking in a shul or beis medrash ...
Likely, it is an acronym for קְהִילָה קְדוֹשָה k'hila k'dosha (lit: holy congregation), a title for Jewish communities whose use dates back to the Talmud (Tamid 27b).
the gemara in brochos says one should not daven so loudly so as not to confuse people that you are the shaliach tzibbur.

The source is PisKei Tosfos in Rosh HaShana. Not the Gemorah itself. That being said the Mishna Brura says that still one should ...
Shulchan Aruch Orach Chaim 124:7 limits the obligation to shush to chazoras hashatz.
One source can be found in Sefer Chafetz Chayim, in the introduction, where he lists positive commandments that one may transgress when speaking Lashon Hara (Sif Zayin, pages 70-71 of Volume 1 in the link). In a nutshell, one violates the prohibition of וּמִקְדָּשִׁי תִּירָאוּ - revere My sanctuaries (Vayikra 19:30). I just want to clarify, this ...
I saw at The Yeshiva World a post that included the words: One who speaks during Chazoras Hashatz causes the Shechinah to leave Klal Yisroel, and it is as if he has sinned with Avodah Zorah. Drush Chasam Sofer vol2pg309b but I didn't see it here on a quick check.
