The Medrash and Gemara about Hoshana Rabbah

I read on shirat devorah the following:

1) The Midrash tells us that G‑d told Abraham: “If atonement is not granted to your children on Rosh Hashanah, I will grant it on Yom Kippur; if they do not attain atonement on Yom Kippur, it will be given on Hoshana Rabbah.”

Where does the Midrash say this?

2) Isaiah says, “They seek Me day [after] day.”

Where does Isaiah say this?

The Talmud explains that these two “days” refer to the day when the shofar is sounded [Rosh Hashanah] and the day when we take the willow [Hoshana Rabbah]—the day when the heavenly judgment begins, and the day when it concludes.

Where does the Gemara say this?
