Usually it doesn't matter, but it might be easier on the dogs if the gear and the synchro hub outer ring are not exactly aligned.

No, I only leave it in gear on hills as a secondary restraint. The parking brake is sufficient for most parking situations. No, it doesn't hurt the car to start it in neutral. I've been doing it for decades that way.

Word up, when youre on like up/downhills putting your car into gear and Ebraking is very necessary...My old friend had a 91 civic hatch where he put his eBrake up on a hill also in neutral and visited his Girlfriend, then as soon as he came out his car was at the bottom of the hill....
