Is it advisable to fill out a DS-160 with your immediate relatives?
I don't think its necessary . Most of the information asked in the DS- 160 are quite straight forward and are mostly about the person applying for the visa. If you need additional information , you can always save the form and edit it after getting the information you need. Hope this helps :)
Is it okay to pay visa fees before filling out the DS-160 form?
No you can’t make visa fee before submitting the DS-160, because once you submit the DS-160 form, it send a email to you with submission confirmation number which is important to synch the payments under your application. Bother how will they ever know who paid for which application.
What's another way to apply for DS-160 (non-immigration visa for tourism to the US) because the online application shows "session timed out" every time I input my credentials to retrieve my application and hit enter?
Mostly, this is a browser related issue. Try using Google chrome. Changing tooltip language to your home country fixes the issue sometime. In other cases, just trying a different day works.

I would anticipate therefore that they have encountered each of the options I have listed below (if not more). The conofficer interviewing you may have a question about your marital status, but if you are able to answer it truthfully and confidently to the point where the interviewer is convinced that you are not misrepresenting the facts, you should be fine.Wait until you get married to submit your DS-160ProsSince the H-4 visa is based on marital status, this would be my most preferred option, since you can select “Married” for your marital status.It would be true when you submit the application, and (hopefully) true when you appear for the interview.You will have the least mental agony about the process.You will have your marriage certificate handy in case the conofficer asks to see it during the interview.ConsSince interview slots fill up quickly, it may be difficult to get an interview between your wedding date and your proposed travel date to the United States.
