As you may notice, due to the curvature of the upper curve, the vertical lines are not quite vertical (I want them to be perfectly vertical). This is possible if I were able to alter the position of the nodes suitably, which is possible in Gmsh using Points in Surface command. However, this Points in Surface command fails when Transfinite command is used and only works for unstructured meshes in Gmsh. So my question is :

No there's nothing for this.

No: you'll need to split the surface into parts that have 3 or 4 sides...
