I mean, really I think it's just that the second draft is the easiest one. Like all he's doing is fixing the things that he knows for a fact were broken in the first draft, not going over the entire thing with a fine-tooth comb.

In this week's chapter of Tor's reread of Oathbringer, both reviewers made comments about how they either are beginning or have started the Stormlight 4 beta read. I don't know if that means Brandon's progress bars haven't been updated in a bit, or if he's still working on the end of Draft 2. Either way, progress!

Some parts of the book are ahead of others.  I believe he finished a working draft of part one and sent it to his editor before continuing on.  It is also possible that he is just keeping things at 90% while he sorts out whatever "sticky" issues this draft has.

Not sure if this was known or not, but Brandon confirmed on Reddit that Tor will be releasing a chapter (chapters?) a week leading up to release, similar to Oathbringer.

If it's anything like 2017, they're going to release 3 chapters per week after the Prologue is released on its own. If we assume that RoW has 30ish chapters in Part 1, I think we can expect an announcement in mid to late August.

Probably not until September at the earliest. Sanderson still needs to finish Draft 4.0 and then do Draft 5.0 (the 10% trim), and then you have the line edit and copy edit by Peter after that I believe. So yeah...the book's not going to be done for a while...
