Could you please help me with these sentences? How would you say them?

- I make more money playing cards than I do working.

- No sooner had I received the cheque than I deposited it into my account.

How would you say these correctly?

- I brought my umbrella just in case it starts raining. (you brought the umbrella but it hasn't rained yet)

- The card expires 3 years after its delivery date.

Thank you

All four are fine. The past brought doesn't bother me at all.

Sentences 1, 2 and 4 are fine.

Sentence three needs to be:

I have brought my umbrella, just in case it starts raining.

If you used brought, that would mean that the action is finished, and you would need to use the same tense in the second part: started. It was in the past, and it has no effect on the present. By using the perfect tense, something you did in the past is still having an effect on the present: your bringing of the umbrella.
