I tested the second workaround, and replaced the 
\DeclareUnicodeCharacter{200B}{} sequence with \newunicodechar{​}{} sequence 
since I am using xelatex, which does not support the former.
It works fine so far.

As far as I know, Chinese users commonly use ctex package 
https://ctan.org/pkg/ctex to handle Chinese typesetting problem, and they 
prefer xelatex and lualatex over pdflatex. They don't support more fonts when 
using pdflatex, compared with using xelatex etc. (you can see that on page 7 of 
their pdf document). So I just use xelatex and don't have much experience using 

When using ctex, you just need to declare \documentclass{ctexart} (ctexart is a 
ctex version article) to use Chinese characters. Then if your system has the 
required default fonts, the pdf documents should be OK.
