Undecided questions
In either sentence, can the first "he" be omitted? Even if in spoken English?

(1) When 【he】 came back, he found the bag he had left hanging over the seat was gone.

(1) If 【he】has a worrying problem, he may be worried.

    No. The "he" in these cases is mandatory.

     

    "When came back, ..." when WHO came back? Unfortunately, you need "he" no matter if it's spoen or written.

    A he-less alternative may be, "Upon coming back, he found the bag he had left hanging over the seat was gone."

    The same for the second sentence: you need "he", otherwise the sentence is broken. It also has problems due to its repetition. You can use, "If problems are encountered, he may be worried."
