At the opposite I was surprised Kishi unravealed so many of the stuff he was keeping mysterious so far. Kishi is a good story teller. So he keeps on purpose many questions unanswered. Everything will be revealed in due time. Maybe in 3 years.
Rin's power, Rin's death, will Oro betray, how, who is the one who knows everything, how Nagato was used, what Tobi was planning to do with Sasuke, what was given by the beasts to Naruto, what will happen to Yamato, to Kabuto, How spiral died, etc. etc.

In any case, not next chapter. Kishi is always making preparations for the departures of the greats. Remember the long good-bye from Jiraya to Tsunade with the many concerns about maybe dying.

Sasuke departed for a long journey. Plus he will probably have to confront Oro. The battle Naruto vs Madara should resolve during the end of the day, which is the 10-tails only resurectional day. They could both survive and confront another day. But for the actual today battle, I really don't see how Sasuke could still take part in it.

Her healing power costs her her life span. My guess is still she will use all her day quota to save the 4 other kages. Many other possible options of course.

Remember it's a clone actually fighting the wood dragoon. Madara saw it. Clones never win. The info they get while losing is useful though.
The question "where is Naruto" remains. I wouldn't think he is invisible or underground. He could be :
- in Tobi's dimension. Sent by Tobi who thought he was a clone. I first thought this option doesn't make sense as Naruto can't send himself back to usual dimension. But actually he can. he just has to summon a frog, go in his mouth, and release the summon. He ends up in frog's land.
- In frog's land, accumulating nature energy together with Karuma and sending repeatidly only clones to battle. Seems to me a safe way to confront Madara.
