Hanging drywall, where ceiling meets wall

I've included two pictures below, would someone please tell me which is the correct method? If there are required gaps, how wide must they be (min/max)?

The 1st illustration is closest to being correct. You hang the ceiling first and then when feasable you butt the wall drywall up to the ceiling - it helps to hold the ceiling drywall up around the perimeter.
