I noticed that on Duolingo yes/no questions are never constructed with ли (as in, Слушаешь ли ты классическую музыку?). Is this structure with ли very uncommon? Is there a way to know when one should use it?

You can use ли in most cases, but in everyday speech it is too formal / unnatural. It would be more appropriate for a survey questionnaire, for example.

In English the preposition "to" is necessary in a sentence with this structure. "I am listening to music, to the radio, to my mother., etc." If you don't specify what it is you are listening to, you may say "listen" without "to": A mother asks her child, "Are you listening?" ("to me" is implied.) But note that I said, "If you don't specify what you are listening to…" Here "what" takes the place of music, etc., so "to" is necessary.
