You can enable the corresponding audit options in a domain scoped gpo, and if needed(if you want to consider also local users) configure event forwarding.
The problem that you will have to configure custum wiew in event viewer(filter). It wont be an easy task.
You can use a third party tool that parses this details an give an easy to use dashboards:
Some AD attributes may be also useful:

Based on my knowledge, logon events are auditted by default. We could check the default domain policy under:
computer configuration\Windows setting\Security settings\local policy\audit policy\audit logon events
And when users logon to domain, the account should be authenticated by DC, and then a logon event (4624 (logon) and 4634 (logoff)) will be logged on the DC.
For audit changing password, please refer to the below links:
