How long can I leave Bradford White gas water heater on Low setting with the house water main turned off

With gas appliances and heaters I would turn the gas off. When you are there you are opening a closing doors and windows and creating air flow. When your home is locked up, gas could build up, especially if a pilot light went out. 2 or 3 days, no problem but anything longer than that, turn it off, or get a house sitter.

I WAS TOLD THAT MY WATER HEATER IS NOT WORKING PROPERLY BECAUSE OF WE ARE 7000FT IN ELEVATION AND APPARENTLY HEATER WAS SET TO SEA LEVEL.

Question moved from Kitchen Ranges. You need a High Altitude Conversion Kit from the maker. Then you need a gas registered technician to fit them and adjust. Standard altitude is up to 2,000 feet above sea level, https://www.google.com/search?q=gas+water+heater+setting+for+altitude+above+sea+level ..

Why don't I get hot water at the master shower

Check the pipes that go to your bathroom from the heater. Possible blockage can be found by how hot the pipes are.

Morco D61B Water Heater. The pilot light is boiling the water??

It would be. The flue and the cover needs to be attached to reduce air flow and direct it up the flue. Or the pilot light needs the flame turning down. It is a gas appliance and needs to be serviced by a gas certified engineer.Owner manual and technical instructions.https://www.freeboilermanuals.com/assets/pdf/Morco/D61B-good.pdf..

I turned up the water temp on my gas water tank, and water leaked from the side pipe..do I need to repalce the pressure release valve or is this normal?

Any time your pressure release valve goes off you should replace it. the t&p valve responds to the temperature and pressure its possible that the setting you chose was to hot, or its possible that the relief valve was just worn out. I would replace that and keep your temp setting between B and C. another possibility is thermal expansion, check and make sure your expansion tank is good and if you don't have one I highly recommend it.
