In a number of cases (including this one) it is counted wrong when I type هذا, but with other examples it is okay. I don't know how to type the 'hanging ʾalif', but shouldn't it always be right to leave it away if you don't write the vowel signs?

yeh it should be correct (in fact we dont use it in daily writing, it's just a guide). Some people also complained about it but seems Duolingo didnt do anything about it yet

Absolutely right. Harakat are not letters, but just diacritics.
