correct junction box wiring?

i have in my basement new lines feeding everything down there. My question is what is the correct way to wire the junction boxes. I have the feed in from the breakers going to the first box ( i'm using 12/2), then i have a Black, White and Green going down a conduit to an outlet, then another set of Black, Green, and White going back up to the junction box, then another 12.2 leaving it going to the next one down the line.

Do I connect the feed in to the feed in the the outlet, and the feed out to the feed out of the junction box, or do i connect all blacks, and white, and grounds together.

You only need one set of black, white and green going down the conduit.
You should just splice the two romexs and the THHNs in the junction box.
You want your circuits connected in parallel, not in series.
