Q: What is "a formal defense"?
A: From what I researched a while ago , about formal defense , it is not a common word ... but it surely shows up to related topics like the military and Congress , when you make a search!

Yes ! I think you're going on the right track , theres a term "Apologia" but I think it is another type of formal defense 💦 It is a very tricky definition , it changes its context on whatever the topic is in !

I think 答弁 is an equal equivalent for a "formal" defense ! since formal defense is just what you said! A reply/excuse because "formal" is just a etiquette word used often in congress/political military topics , and it's just a defense from the public ?
Q: I came to her defense yesterday night from a suspicious guy. это звучит нормально?
A: When you come to someone’s defense (verbally or physically), you defend them from a verbal or physical attack, so the problem with using the phrase with someone who is “suspicious” is that the sentence sounds incomplete. You may be cautious around someone suspicious, but in order to come to someone’s defense, you need to be defending against something. You could say
I came to her defense when a suspicious guy started calling her names last night.
I hope that makes sense.
Also, unlike the verb defend, when you come to someone’s defense, that is a complete phrase. So you would not use the preposition from. You can say
I defended her from...x.
I came to her defense. (In which case you can add another clause with when, as I did above.)
Hope that helps.
