Native English speakers, could you please help me with these issues?
1. Are these sentences correct:
"He has a different outlook of the world, and his readers may gain WITH that."~
2. Even if it sounds more formal, does it amke sense to say 'mode of living'? (And does it mean the same as 'way of living'?)

"He has a different outlook of the world, and his readers may gain from that."
With - together, from - as a result of
"With" says readers gain by having a different view of the world. It also makes assumptions about that view. What is it they gain WITH that view?
From says the readers gain something by getting a different view of the world without specifics of what they gain.
As words change meanings in phrases and phrases can change meanings in a sentence, it is best to use a full sentence.
"Mode" is closer to "Method" than "way".
We often use the phrase "mode of transportation" as boat, plane, car, bus, public vs private, etc.
Google the phrase "mode of living" and you get sample uses.
Terminology in a background check-
mode of living : living in an apartment or house? married or single? any kids? living with family? smoker? what do you like to eat? hobbies? lavish spending or conservative with money
This web site finds examples
method, model, pattern
mode implies something specific, "way" is a loose term. It is not formal vs colloquial
Changing method to way in the ludwig site provides much shorter sentences
Describes the old way of living by the old rules.
"It's just a different way of living".
It can be replaced with "lifestyle".
