1) The clicking noise that you are hearing is most likely a relay or a contactor
Have you checked the gate opener control box to confirm if a relay or a contactor is present? If so, the coil side of the relay or contactor should always have voltage present and the Normally Open or Normally Closed contacts on the relay will only have voltage when the remote is activated. A digital multimeter can be used to confirm the presence of voltage.
Sounds like you have either a faulty relay/contactor or a loose wire connection? Check for any stuck closure on the relay or contactor.
