(1) the sideways pull of the sling on the bottom of the fore-stock rotates the rifle about the barrel axis, so now the reticle is not horizontal, but canted about 10 to 15 degrees (obviously not good).
Get your elbow directly under the rifle, balanced, where if you relax it tries to fall forward pulling on the sling. It shouldn't want to fall left or right.

(2) If I relax, my head falls forward and takes my eye away from the scope.
Keep the head straight. Bring the rifle to the head. You should be able to rest your head (cheek) on the stock so that your eye is lined up with the sights. If you relax your head, nothing should change.
