I don't have anything with Chase so others would be more helpful than I here, but I would bet money they have the option to set up auto-pay. Just about every major credit card provider does. That also means I can't be too helpful with redemption details, but I have an Amex EveryDay card, which has a similar transferable points system, and while I haven't used any yet, I know one needs to set up an account with a partner (take British Airlines, for example) then go through the process on the Amex website to convert to Avios points. If Chase is like Amex, one can only tranfer points in large increments (like groups of 1,000 points). Once the transfer has been made, everything goes through the partner, just as if you had earned the points directly by taking flights.
When I was applying for my Amex, I had the same frustrations about wanting access to more information. I believe you should at least be able to find Chase's transfer partners online, though.
And for what it's worth, Amex offers several cards worth considering (2 traditional credit cards, and a spectrum of charge cards that must be paid off in full every month) that earn a similar Membership Rewards points system; however, if you want any kind of respectable return rate you pretty much have to be committed to transferring your points for travel. Like Chase's Ultimate Rewards system, you can redeem for cash if you want, but you get much less value per point.
