Will I make it? If the AC flight is delayed and I miss the connection, where do I stand with UA? High and Dry?
No, this is not a high risk connection. It is not a connection at all, just two unrelated separate tickets

I have no idea where you are coming from or going to, but unless the AC flight is significantly early, you have no chance at all of catching your next flight. Your UA ticket will auto-cancel and retain whatever value it has according to the fare rules. Probably nothing.

UA will ask you to remove your credit card from your wallet if you wish to travel on a later service to wherever you planned to go, unless you are extremely fortunate in having a kind agent take sympathy on you. Don't count on it and instead book yourself a much earlier AC flight. Like four hours earlier.
