Need info on Chinese airlines

In our upcoming China trip, we have some in-country flights. I have checked on the size & weight allowed for both checked & carry-on baggage. I have a couple additional questions that I am looking for answers for from Forum readers.

1) From the way the baggage restrictions read, since we are flying economy it appears I am not allowed to carry-on a personal item (such as a purse) in addition to my carry-on bag. Is that correct?

2) I read somewhere (can't remember where) that Chinese airlines required that checked baggage be locked. Is that true?

Any other tips on flying the Chinese airlines will be greatly appreciated!

1) Nobody cares too much about carry-on so do as you wish.

2) Not true. I never locked mine and few people do. Neither do I on international flights either; waste of time and money unless ou have a Pacsafe suitcase.
