Does the 30 day period count from the signing of the contract, or from the move-in date?
The linked form says it's from when you got control of the object, that's usually the move-in date.

How you bought the furniture, or from whom, and for how much, has no effect on what you rent. It looks like you rent without furniture, which comes with 3 months notice period. Check your contract, longer terms are permitted as long as it's the same for both parties.

The default end dates for a rental contract are March+June+September in Zürich city, March+September for the rest of Canton Zürich; a renter will usually want "Ende jeden Monts" instead for increased flexibility (which still excludes December, that's not a legal cancel date). Anyway either arrangements are legal; check your contract. Further, the contract may come with a minimum duration, in which case that's how it is.

For additional questions you should upload an anonymised scan of your contract (all pages), this is too much guesswork.

Oh, and, WRT the SchlichtungsBehörde (arbitration panel), they have no outright authority to order like a court does, but AFAIA they're free of cost for you, they must be consulted before a court can be consulted, and their findings will usually be strongly considered by the courts, so most parties will accept their findings.
