I don't see "Ou vas tu?". Is that considered very informal or wrong?

Bonjour Steve !

Not at all : "Où vas-tu ?" is the inverted question form, which is actually considered more elegant and formal than its equivalents:
"Où est-ce que tu vas ?"
"Où tu vas ?"
"Tu vas où ?"

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
