I believe that's a more general challenge: Git tracks _content_ so might
also be unhappy with empty files (possibly in some corner cases, even if
it works generally).

Well, you can look at the git history for inspiration ;-)
I prefer to commit each semantic change separately, with a commit
message likely usable directly as a changelog line. Then generate a
draft changelog update with "gbp dch -a", adjust it, and commit together
with automated changes (updates to copyright_hints and to package
relations in control file).
As for comments in the header of the patch, please use DEP3 syntax:

Try if this succeeds:
gbp buildpackage --git-ignore-new --git-no-sign-tags

Please discuss bugs at their bugreport, rather than here on the list:
That helps the release team quickly understand a bug, needed for them to
judge if they consider it reasonable for an sxception the to freeze.
