comment Are there measurable quantities which directly depends on the Fermi velocity?
(1) Away from absolute zero the states above and below the fermi surface are all relevant; (2) Even with no (intentional) gating, the fermi level will not be EXACTLY at the dirac point in practice; (3) Even if it is exactly at the dirac point somewhere, it won't be exactly at the dirac point elsewhere, because of inhomogeneities like random dangling bonds in the substrate; (4) If you apply a voltage than the fermi level is tilted and cannot be at the dirac point everywhere. So again, every electronic and optoelectronic property is affected.

comment Do all the conservation laws of Physics take no time to propagate?
In my EPR pair example, there is a more energetic particle and a less energetic particle, but it is not determined which is which. If you measure the energy of one, you can immediately infer the energy of the other. But this does not require or imply that either information or energy is moving faster than light. Why would it? See physics.stackexchange.com/a/3163/3811 for more details, for example.

Yes, you can have two distant entangled particles (called an EPR pair), where one is more energetic and one is less energetic, but it is not determined which is which until you measure them. You can look online or in an intro QM textbook for an explanation of why information does not flow faster than light when you measure an EPR pair. This information-flow issue is commonly discussed. Well, energy also does not flow faster than light when you measure an EPR pair ... and it's for the exact same reason.

There is no such thing as just "continuity", there are a wide variety of "continuity equations" describing many different quantities. Energy and momentum are conserved in quantum mechanics, and yes, those conservation laws are written as continuity equations in quantum mechanics too. There is no conflict between entanglement (which is ubiquitous in QM) and these continuity equations. I'm not sure why you think there would be. Can you explain what you have in mind?
