You will probably hit more debris with the rear wheel compared to the front one, because you can easily manoeuvre around the debris with the front wheel, but the rear one doesn't track the same. This is more apparent when you ride off road, especially on mtb. Also it's easier to lighten the front wheel over debris or cracks compared to the rear one. Plus you have more weight on the rear wheel. All these might be cause of punctures only on the rear wheel.
Absolutely, but I haven't seen this much of a discrepancy in other sets, and purposefully chose the Control in the hope this would counter some of that effect. Certainly in terms of both surface cuts and cuts that go all the way through, it hasn't been noticeably better than Corsas in my experience :noidea:
Honestly I'd attribute it to pure chance. Most punctures on road are just bad luck anyway.
Just adding my $0.02, think we all know punctures are largely chance but still worth talking about it.
