Do we know what Soviet losses against 6th Army were during these two phases?

here a typical German "statistic":
Battle of Stalingrad casualties by war party from August 23, 1942 to February 02, 1943

It's pretty pathetic, but what you can find so quickly on the internet...

I don't think so. There were several abortive attempts to reduce the pocket in November-early December 1942 and some local fighting on the perimeter thereafter. Another operation was to start in mid-December but was postponed several times, first due to unexpected relief attempt (aka operation Wintergewitter) and then due to logistical problems. In other words the Soviet command didn't intend to allow the pocket to survive for so much time, rather it was an unpleasant reality they had to swallow.
