No, `C-<delete>' is normally bound to `kill-word' while `M-<delete>' is
bound to `backward-kill-word'.  `kill-visual-line' is bound to `C-k' and
`<deleteline>' if `visual-line-mode' is activated.  If it's not active,
`kill-visual-line' isn't bound to any key.

Is it really different at you?  Please check with "emacs -Q".

That's because major and minor mode bindings override global bindings.
And `kill-visual-line' is bound in `visual-line-mode-map'.

I think the thing that you don't like is `visual-line-mode', so I'd
suggest to switch that off.
