So would "nager" correspond to "marcher" and would "faire de la natation" correspond to "faire une promenade", where the first pair is like a skill/ability and the second is the partaking in the activity?

so, it's not "faire de la natation" because it's a negative statement. Is that correct?

I would say simply " I can swim but i don't".

I would love to know the mechanics that make nager into natation here.
