It's very possible that the files are corrupted and/or the iWork apps you're using are just too old. Have you tried updating them? Or, have you tried something like LibreOffice to see if they'll at...

Change it on the monitor itself. I'm guessing that the monitor, like most, has buttons to adjust screen options including the brightness.

Only you can answer that. That said though, if you are often away from an internet connection and you only have them online, then probably not.
