Abandonment

CrayolaColor
Not explicitly, but Mary talks a lot about missing her father. The implication is that he died without her being aware, but from her POV it would seem like abandonment.

There is a large snake in the New Game+ bonus dungeon. It is asleep the entire time, and the only interaction you have with it is to move it out of the way.
There are also a few paintings or drawings of snakes scattered throughout the game.

One of the characters, Mary, may or may not die depending on the ending. If she survives, it's likely another character (who is 9) may have died.

Yes, one of the main characters sacrifices himself to save the player character in a couple of endings via giving up an object that's directly connected to his life. While he initially seems hopeful he'll get it back, there's a strong implication he knows that he won't.

There are some instances of things changing for split seconds which could be considered jumpscares, paintings that were inanimate attacking the player, lights shutting off quickly, and arms reaching out of walls suddenly.

Most of the game takes place inside the "fabricated world", it is separate from but connected to the real world. It's possible for characters to cross through from one to the other through the painting(s?) that exist in the real world. In some endings, things that happen in the fabricated world affect the real world art gallery.

The main character may ask another character why he "talks like a woman" during some optional dialogue- it's just an awkward consequence of the fact that in the original Japanese, the character being asked uses a traditionally feminine mode of speech, which doesn't translate well into English.

At most, there is an optional scene where Ib finds a romance novel containing sex. But because of her age, she does not know any of the words, and Garry takes the book away. This results in a lot of the words being censored.

There are several endings and only one of them is unambiguously happy. You can look up a guide to see how to achieve this ending.

There are some depictions of writing in blood, and there is a storybook-esque segment near the middle which features someone dissecting someone else in order to get a key, and there is a brief period in that scene where the player can hear some screaming due to that event.
