“Do you feel [noun]?” asks if the person is capable of that feeling. “Do you feel [adjective]?” asks if the person is currently having that feeling. In the past tense, the difference isn’t quite as strong, but there’s still a shadow of it there.


Since "advances" in that context means to "make progress", or "make improvements", so I'll stick with make. Also, yeah, do sounds wrong. As a side node, I went down the rabbit hole of "advances" vs "advancements", and it seems that advances is more used. Google Ngram


"Advances have been done" sounds quite wrong to me. A check on google ngram viewer shows "advances have been made" is about 1000 times more common (if I've counted the zeros correctly). It's possible that it's a regional variant, I suppose. Google ngram viewer
