    1) you are mine . People understand what you mean but we seldom say you belong to me. Simply use - you are mine- is more straight forward.

    However, we normally use belong for owning an item, The book/ the car/ the handbag belongs to me .

    2) It does not sound right. Nobody says so.

    You better let us know what you want to say and we translate it for you.
