An unmarried father cannot "choose" to not pay child support. The laws in every state require that a father pay for the support of his child. The mother must bring an action to the appropriate court so that a child support order can be established. Visitation rights are separate and a father can have visitation rights established by the court. Visitation rights are not dependent on paying child support.
Paying child support will not cause the father to lose his parental rights - neither will not paying child support.
if the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?
Signing rights away will not stop any child support from being taken from the father. If the child is the fathers then he is financially responsible for the child weather he has rights or not.
How does he have any visitation rights with a custody and child support order?
Termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.
As you have now given up your rights to the child you do not have to pay back child support.
You can sign your rights away but you will still have to pay child support if you are the father or mother of the child. There is no way to avoid paying child support.
No, when a mother or father relinquishes his parental rights he is no longer responsible for child support.

No. He can sign over his rights but he would still be liable to pay child support. The only time he doesn't have to pay child support is if a stepdad wanted to adopt the child, then the biological father doesn't have to pay child support if he signs his rights away.
You don't. He has his rights as well.
Yes, if the mother does not want the child and the father is willing to take the child. Then the mother may sign her rights over to the father if the father is able to take of the child. Signing over one's rights will not terminate child support obligation(s).
