Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have a few questions—One, Is possible to find out more information about the area or distance of roads?

Two, does OSM ever delete any of the roads that were digitized without letting the digitizer know?

Thank you for all your support!

since the 2 questions are unrelated, it's better to ask them separately

For (2), there is no notification system for changes made after you uploaded data to the server. Not for updates, not for deletes. Luckily I would say, especially for heavy mappers who touched thousands of objects.

However, there are some tools to keep track of changes in a particular area. See e.g. https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/760/user-friendly-tool-for-tracking-changes-in-an-area
