For the yarn twisting up on you, I would alternate between turning the work.If you're working on straight needles, I would rotate in different directions when turning the work instead of constantly rotating it clockwise or counter clockwise so that it will cancel it out.

I usually wind my yarn into a ball instead of the general skein form it comes in so that it can roll around on the floor.Usually when I need more yarn and I tug at it, the ball rolls in a way that it will not twist it up.

If you're scared of undoing your work, they do sell little end protectors that you can put on your needles for storing and moving your work.If I'm working with DPNs,I usually just push all the stitches to the middle of the needles, pinch them in tight and wind the working end of the yarn around the work, right under the needles to keep the stitches from just sliding out.I do this instead of buying point protectors
