Why do events without duration not show on the first day of every month?

If your timezone settings are not default you may find that events entered with no duration on the first day of the month, do not show in the month view of the calendar. Setting the two timezone settings in Site administration > Location > Location settings to the default settings should resolve this.

How can I show more upcoming events?

To show more events in the Upcoming events block, increase the days and/or events to lookahead in Site Administration > Appearance > Calendar.

How can I import calendar events?

See Calendar import.

Can I have a two-way sync with my Moodle calendar with my Google calendar?

Not reliably. There does not seem to be a way to make this work at this time.

Why are month names not being displayed in the correct language?

Names of days and months are pulled out of your operating system. The system is configured for Moodle in langconfig.php where you have the strings locale (for -nix type operating systems) and localewin (for Windows operating systems) that should point to the right locale on your server. Your server operating system should support the language (= locale should be installed). See MDL-31622 for further details.

Why do I not see the class meeting times on my Moodle calendar?

Moodle Calendar events will only appear on the course calendar on or after the first day of classes. These events are pulled from Colleague, the central registration database. The events will include the class meeting times and the room location as it is first entered into Colleague. Events will not be updated with changes after the initial import to Moodle Calendar.
