Task Work Item under the Story, then press Tab to shift it
"under" the Story. This will create the parent-child
relationship.

With the parent-child relationship, you will get a Percent Completed
data item for the Story that reflects the number of Tasks still open
that belong to it. I'm not sure any similar data is available if the
Work Items are just related.


I agree. That's the way to go ;-) Progress computation is based on
parent-child relation ships. Further, a story should be understood as
hight level work unit which is concretised by defining (implementing)
subtasks.
