"Нам треба бути тут" sounds more natural to my ears.

1) Right now it's accepted 2) No, it doesn't sound unnatural. How it sounds depends on the context and the intonation. If somebody is emphasizing that we must be here, they might say Нам треба тут бути, ти не розумієш! with strong emotions. Nothing wrong at all :)

Well, because if you don't write it, it's unclear what треба refers to: нам треба тут сидіти, нам треба тут жити?..
