Derive elliptic maximum principle from weak derivatives

This is not a complete answer. Since $u-\sup_{\partial U} u$ solves the same inequation, w.l.o.g. you can assume that $ u\leq 0$ on $\partial U$ and you want to prove $u\leq 0$ inside. By density your ...

I am far from being an expert, but if I understand your question correctly, the answer is "no", at least for the Plateau problem in the realm of Caccioppoli sets. Vinti's cited result [2] ...

On the weak derivative of $|u|^{(p-2)/2}u$

Only a partial answer : (2) seems strange. In dimension $1$, if $u$ does not change sign, your setting includes the one of $u^\alpha \in H^1(0,1)$ (boundary values are irrelevant here) for some $\...
