In brief: Depends

Avoid any physical exertion for the rest of the day.
After the first day listen to your body. There are great variations in the amount of rest you will need until you heal depending on your age, the amount of bone that was removed, and your own individuality. If you begin to be active prematurely, you may experience increased pain in the area of the surgery.

In brief: 1-3 days

The amount of rest after surgery for tooth impaction required depends on how extensive the surgery was, how much bone was lost and most importantly, how much pain and swelling happened after the surgery was done.
Your surgeon can be the best judge of that, however allowance needs to be made as different people heal differently.
