Question Wiring a warehouse unit/office

I'm moving my business from one warehouse unit to another. I'm doing a little bit of wiring that I can, while leaving all the big stuff to the pros.

First question:

In the office, there is one 14/3 going from the breaker panel (20a 240v double) to a baseboard heater. There is one box in the line where it connects (to extend the length). Am I able to put a 110v receptacle in that box and wire it just for 110v? The baseboard heater is a 1500w. TIA!

The nominal voltage is 120 but it is unlikely there is a neutral in the box so no it can't be used for a 120v receptacle.

In most places in the US you would need a licensed professional to work in a commercial space. Is this the same north of the border?

There is a neutral in the box (capped off) from the previous tenants.

Same as in the US, but I'm just doing a few simple things like this that will save time. I'll have a pro check it and approve it when they come to do the other work.

Liability and licensing issues may come into play. Also many will not put their license and insurance on the line for work they did not do.
