How do you read Nutrition labels?

I'm confused. In reference to this image: imgur.com/a/l8rok10 Does the "Total Fat" mean the total amount of fat for the whole container, regardless of the number of servings, Is it also the same with "Total Carbohydrates"? As for "Protein", Since there's no "Total" indicated on it, I assume it's...

Questions on calorie counts & macros not matching up.

So when I calculate my macros, the protein, fat & carb intake never comes out what the calories of the food are. Is this common? Should I ignore it? Should I still count the calories of that food regardless if it does not match? For example, on the package of walnuts there are 210 calories...

How is keto good for cutting?

I posted this in the keto forum but no one answered ;/. So I'm wondering how only 20%-30% of my calories from protein is efficient for cutting. Aren't I supposed to get 1g/lbm of protein to preserve muscle on a cut? 20%-30% is pretty far below these macros so why doesn't this become dangerous?
