I am no expert at this, and please wait for a voice with more experience to speak up, but. I have always seen a set neck guitar neck glued into place before finishing. If you did them separately, too much of a chance of getting finish where the glue joint will be, plus gluing and clamping on a fresh finish doesn't sound like a good idea to me. As for front and back at the same time, depends on what you are doing, paint, stain, a burst, or clear coat.

Set neck together, bolt on doesn't matter.

Depends on how you set up, you can do front and back at the same time or separate

I have sprayed with cans when it was about 25 degrees outside, but I was in a small shack with my dual 500w lamps hitting the guitar. But just follow the recomendations of the paint you are using to be safe
