    This area is just fine for the plants. They do not need to be in pots if you are planning on keeping them in the ground.

    Unfortunately there is no complete list of plants that need frost protection. Your best bet would be to type in the plant's name into Google followed by the word zone or hardiness and this will bring up results that let you know how much cold the plant can tolerate.

    Have you fertilized it at all. They need only a very light fertilizer high in phosphorous, but if you have not given any fertilizer, it may need a little to help it.

    It sounds like you are growing it in an almost water based medium, so try giving it just a little fertilizer once every other month so it can get the nutrients it would normally get from soil.

    If it has not developed root rot as a result of the overwatering, you can cut back watering and the plant will most likely recover. If it has root rot, you may be best getting a new plant.

    Yes, you can try cutting these to prevent entire reversion of the plant. This article will help explain why this reversion occurs: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/variegated-plant-problems.htm

    "...wait until the stem of the anthurium has grown up to 50cm or more in height and then take a top cutting, by slicing the woody stem of your plant at a length a little more than half of its height. This will encourage the lower portion to produce new off-shoots or runners. Plant the top cutting in potting mix or soil which drains well and keep looking after the parent plant. Ultimately the parent plant will develop new foliage along with the new top cutting. On the parent, any stem node or off-shoot with aerial roots or any slight indication of them is an ideal candidate for new growth, which can be further cut out and divided. "
