Paying child support will not cause the father to lose his parental rights - neither will not paying child support.
No. Access rights are a separate issue, and single fathers have no presumed rights to the child. A motion must be filed to establish those rights.
In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support. If you want to see your child, bring the custodial parent into court.

No. Custodial or visitations issues and child support are completely different matters. Parental rights can only be relinquished voluntarily by the parent or permanently terminated by the court.
Absolutely (as long as it's not SSI). Termination of rights doesn't terminate child support.
yes, until/unless the child is adopted.
Voluntarily terminating your rights or having the rights terminated by the state does not necessarily terminate your obligation to pay child support. Unless your child is adopted and another adult becomes responsible you generally must continue to pay child support.
if the mother terminates her rights can he collect child support from the mother if child lives with him?
Child support can be terminated only if/when the child is adopted.
Yes. He has rights until his rights are terminated by a court order.
His rights are to pay child support and petition for visitation.
Yes, unless/until the child is adopted.
Yes you can object. Generally a court will only terminate a parent's rights in order to allow a legal adoption to proceed or in cases of extreme abuse or neglect. A father cannot ask for his parental rights to be terminated simply to avoid paying child support.
by "signing over rights" I persume you mean, terminating her parental rights and no, she is not obligated to pay child support, however, any accumulated back child support, or "arrears" is required to be paid, unless agreed otherwise. For this you would have had a prior order to pay support prior to the terminating of the mother's rights. When your rights to a child is terminated it is as if the child was never yours and your rights to the child, and obligation for the child are forever terminated.
In most adoptions, the rights/responsibilities of the biological parents are terminated.
