Assuming that this is a fontspec/luaotfload issue, adding "TeX" to the
ligatures list:

   \setmainfont[Ligatures={Common,Rare,TeX},Numbers=OldStyle,RawFeature={+ss06}]{EB Garamond}
should (hopefully) fix the dash issue. Adding "Required" or "Contextual"
to the same ligatures list might solve the ligatures issue. 

You can also try adding "Renderer = Node" as a font option, although
that shouldn't (in theory) affect anything here.

More likely this is an issue caused by some unrelated package/class, so
preparing a minimal and complete example would help solve the issue.
