  • With regards to your first question: Last line on Brachos 8a to 8B. See Ein Mishpat there for where this is brought in Rambam and Shulchan Aruch

  • As @DoubleAA mentioned, this seems like two separate questions. perhaps you should ask the second part as a different question

O. Ch. 285 (3) [7]. The Mishnah Berurah quotes the Shulchan Oruch who says that one may start from Sunday and says "since we begin reading the next week's sedrah at minchah on Shabbos, someone who is maavir sedrah from then on (after minchah)" does the mitzvah and the text of the Shulchan Oruch is "laav davka".

  • The Mishna Berura isn't clear it means after mincha - it could mean after the time of mincha, as the phrase מן המנחה ולמעלה often means (see shaar hatziun there). Feb 10, 2014 at 0:28
