    Draw a veil is a rarely used idiom. It may be more common in the UK. The grammar is correct, and use is fairly accurate. "cover for" or "cover up for" is better than "draw a veil over" for common use. They are both an act of hiding. One direct meaning of "cover for"

    "to provide an excuse for someone, or an explanation for something that has gone wrong"

    It is easier to understand the communication.

    Yes, both are, although some might prefer "lower" in lieu of "draw" with reference to the veil.
