The crew compartment areas were the only areas that were pressurized, the bomb bay wasn't.  There was a tunnel that crossed the bomb bay that was used by the crew to move from the tail to forward sections.

1) The He219 was an underpowered piece of crap.


Under powered?

The lowest max speed I saw was 365, and the highest was somewhere around 415.

That doesn't sound underpowered to me.

Piece of crap?   How so??

The He 219 was not a dayfighter, it was not designed to be one, and it was not used as one. It would be slaughtered in that application.
