Does https help? The content is encrypted, true, but does this protocol prevent the provider from putting an envelope around it so the receiver still can identify the sender? I never had an interest how https works on a low level. Perhaps I should look into it.

Yes. Using HTTPS will prevent Verizon from injecting foreign content into your traffic. A.K.A. "Man in the middle" attacks.
