UA T2 -> VN T4 Transfer?

I'm looking at a UA flight from SFO that would be scheduled to arrive in SIN at 6:45pm in T2. UA has me continuing 2 hours later on a VN flight out of T4 to SGN. VN flight is not a codeshare, but booked through UA.
1) I assume my bags would check through?
2) I doubt I'd be given a real boarding pass in SFO, does VN have a transfer desk at T2 to get a real boarding pass?
3) The bus transfer from T2 is landside. Is there a way to take the airtrain to T1 or T3 and then take an airside bus to T4, all in that 2 hour window? I may have visa issues if I have to pass through immigration to transfer.

I can only answer 3) - there is actually an airside transfer between terminal 2 and terminal 4. The bus is next to gate F51/F52
map can be found at the Changi airport website

I received a response from Changi!
Since you are transferring between two full costs carriers, you may transfer internally without clearing immigration. You may just take the internal shuttle bus from T2 to T4 and approach the Transfer Lounge to get your onward journey boarding pass. If you have your baggage checked-thru to your final destination country, you will have them transferred for you automatically.
