1) nutrients prior to yeast is fine.
1.5) more yeast won't be an issue. The main problem is just that you don't get to save the yeast for later batches, or that it takes up space.
2) That's fine. The yeast gets mixed up into the liquid anyways, it doesn't stay on top. Also, if the sugar has settled, that's fine too. The yeast will still be eating at it.

You'll probably want to stop shaking it after the first day, since you won't want too much air in the liquid. Some people like the yeast, some people don't. Yeast does have a flavor to it which will influence the flavor of the drink. most will want to let the yeast settle by making the drink cold, or letting it all ferment so that the yeast have nothing to work with and just stop.
