Time Tracking: can we copy the log work description to the standard comments field as well?

When users log work against an issue, they are presented with the Work Description field.

However, the text added to this field can only be seen in the Work Log tab of an issue, and often gets missed. 

One of our teams would like to know if these scenarios are possible:

1.  Add the Work Log info to a section in the issue preview screen so this info can be previewed when viewing a Board  (ie: so you can navigate around the Board and you aren't forced to click into the issue as a whole to find the logged time info) -- and yes, I know you can add Time to the card layout, but this doesn't allow for the display of the comments added which include a description of why the amount of time logged, was logged.

2. When adding text in the Work Description when logging time, could the work description entry also be added to the issue comments field?

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out here.
