Before beginning Shemoneh Esrei, one takes three steps forward. Should they be taken after the kaddish beforehand is completed, to avoid being mafsik with the Amen? Or should you begin the steps while kaddish is in progress, so you can start Shemoneh Esrei without delay?

Similarly, what should one do by Shacharis? Should you finish ga'al yisrael before starting the steps or not?
