Buy 4 tickets to hold a whole soft sleeper
We are a family of 3. I read online that each passenger can only buy one ticket, but we do want to have a private cabin of our own. What if I will book another ticket with another passport? Do you think this is workable?

Thank you for your inquiry.

With 4 passports, it is OK to buy 4 tickets in one cabin. However, it is recommended to take the 4th passport with you when traveling. You can collect the 4th tickets out which will enlarge the chance of getting private cabin for the whole trip. However, some times, the staff may check the berth situation at some stops, so this option is not 100% guaranteed. Hope for your advanced notice.

Why the ticket price on G571 is higher than G309?

They run on different routes. The distance for G571 is longer and the price mainly depends on distance. So the price is higher on G571. You can also consider the flight. If a good discount is offered for your travel date, it may even cheaper than high speed rail service.
