Answer
# 1
The procedure is called Fast Tracking. Starting Sucessor
activities before the completion of their Predessor
activity.

Fast tracking is risky, needs very good coordination and
may involve rework.

This can be achieved only incase you are a different set of
resources on the predecessor and sucessor activities also
incase of any free resources u can utilize to do this.
