Wiring multiple lights on one circuit

I have two related questions. I am wiring multiple lights from multiple swithes on one circuit. 1) May I run wire through the floor, into a box at each point along the way, then connect each box with the final one going to the circuit breaker? 2) May I come out of the circuit breaker into a box, then run two wires out of the box and circle the room in opposite directions or should the above be one complete set of connections in series?

Provided you follow all other rules such as stapling and drilling though joists etc. what you are proposing is OK. When you circle the room in opposite directions don't connect the wires again if you meet in the middle.

Thanks. Cuts down on some of drilling necessary by doing it this way. Also allows me to just feed wires down studs and through floor without the necessity of hooking up all the way to the box so that the drywaller can do his thing while I do all the wiring in the basement.
