AFAIK you cannot control the pixel density.  That is a property of the hardware of the device. The device manufacturers optimize the pixel density of the device to the characteristics of the overall hardware package.  

Normally developers are only going to be concerned with resolution to fit and position content correctly.  If your images do not show well for some devices, then you need multiple images optimized for each device.  There is no circumstances where any presentation is going to lok the same in all devices, because they do not all use the same software, firmware or hardware to geneate presentation.

It depends on what you are trying to do.  max-device-width ignores orientation and re-sizing because it refers to the rendering area available for display.  While max-width is responsive because it refers to the current viewport and so the value being tested changes if the orientation changes or the window is re-sized.

Without an actual page this is just academic.  The correct coding in any specific situation is 100% related to the content and how you want it rendered.  With no content to consider, then all solutions are both correct and incorrect.
