"I never do give up" is much better.

Yes but it sounds super formal and poetic. You would not hear this in everyday speech.

Yes, you can begin with "never" and follow with an inverted verb - which can include a modal or other auxiliary, like "do". See. https://www.grammarly.com/blog/what-is-sentence-inversion/
