Is there a way to limit a Morph Query search to a single clause or sentence? This type of limit is essential to reduce the number of false hits in many types of searches that this tool would be useful for.

This was one of the fantastic features of Gramcord and I could not see this option in the Morph Query Editor, even though the user interface looks superficially similar.

As it is a text Search, there is no notion of grammatical constructions like those. It's main advantage over conventional text Search (Basic, Bible, Morph) is that you can define the scope arbitrarily, rather than being restricted to article/chapter/verse. It still means you have to adjust the scope (Search Span) to avoid unrelated/false hits.

Thanks for pointing this out. Unfortunately the Clause search does not allow agreement of search terms based on the morphological features (e.g. a noun and participle in the same case, gender and number). The only way to do agreement would be a very cumbersome query with every possible permutation of agreement. The Morph Query editor makes agreement easy to specify.

Clause Search and Morph Query Editor results can be saved as Passage list. Intersecting Passage Lists provides a way to find agreement in a clause (other option is Syntax Search).
