Answer

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful

Assalaamu `alaykum waRahmatullahi Wabarakatoh

Jazakallah for your kind words and duas. We cannot do anything without the tawfeeq of Allah.

1. Your question is general and therefore our response will also be general. A woman may travel to another state with her mahram. She cannot travel by herself. She may stay there by herself on condition there is no fear of fitna. If there is a fear of fitna, then it is not permissible for her to stay by herself.
2. There is no time restriction for reciting the Quran. Quran may be recited during makrooh times of salah.

And Allah knows best

Wassalam
