when to grout?

I am tiling a 350 square foot living room with travertine on a cement slab. Things are going well, but got a question on when to grout. Should I grout 24 hours after each section of tile is placed? Or should i finish tiling whole room then grout, or is it just a matter of preference?

Next question, Would it be bad to grout between tile and wall? Or should I just leave open since baseboard will cover?

thanks in advance to those who can help.

Wait til you are done setting the tile, then you can hit all of it at once.
Leave the gap ungrouted, you risk problems with cracking border tiles as the framing in the walls goes through its seasonal changes(if you get a little in there while grouting don't sweat it too much, just dont pack it tight).
