    Я взял палку и нож, мелки и бумагу и направился к холмам.

    Is there any emotional difference? Or is it just grammar?

    Grammar.

    Is the Russian specificaly talking about "Men" as in the males in the world, or "man" as in "human kind".

    In English you say:

    I have lived in London for 3 years
    Я уже три года живу в Лондоне.
