framing an interior, non-load bearing wall

Hi:
I'm dividing one large bedroom into 2. I have 2 questions.
First, is there any disadvantage to laying to sole plate on top of the existing carpet? Or should I cut the carpet?

Second, is a cap plate and a top plate needed or just one of these?

Thanks.

Cut the carpet and attach to sub floor. Only need one top plate.
