Does отвечать only work in the context of questions and answers? Can it be used in the sense of "answering the phone"?

Maybe. But I think it only goes in answers.

Perhaps she turned off the phone or her phone's battery is low. Let me use the drone.

Would this sentence also work with зачем?

I don't think so. It can be said as a joke, but I can't find a serious context for that. "Зачем" doesn't really work well with negative sentences. It can be rephrased as "Зачем Вера пропустила звонок?" ("Why did Vera miss a call?") if we want to imply she did it on purpose.
