These warnings are harmless. The first one is typically generated in corner cases of reactions on light nuclei. Note that events violating energy conservation are resampled, so your calculation will always satisfy energy conservation. The second warning is emitted because Geant4 requested an inelastic event for the mentioned projectile-target combination (because the parametrized proton reaction cross section does not vanish), but INCL++ cannot generate one (because e.g. the proton is below INCL++'s internal Coulomb barrier).
Both cases are corner cases. Similar things happen in all models; INCL++ is just a more chatty about it. You should not worry too much about them, unless you are specifically interested in e.g. sub-barrier reactions.

If the simulation quits or crashes unexpectedly, it cannot be due to these warnings.

If you are interested in a precise description of reactions below ~50 MeV, then intranuclear-cascade models are not your best bet. How low is your low energy?
