    BE prefers the latter form of each pair, AE the former, I believe.

    "Have you got to do homework?" doesn't sound terribly common to me. I'd use it in a statement ('I've got to do the laundry', 'He's got to stop behaving like that') but for some reason not in a question for 'müssen'.

    Context/ examples
    In BE 'Have you got to do homework' would mean now, or imminently. 'Do you have to do homework? would mean regularly.
