Q 1: Where should a woman stand when her husband is leading her in Salah (Prayer)?

A: When a man leads a woman in Salah, even if she is his wife, she has to stand behind him.

He (Anas) stood on his right and his mother stood behind them. According to another narration: I, along with the orphan, stood behind him, while Um Sulaym stood behind us.
