In brief: Before surgery

Stop your fish oil 1 week before surgery because of blood thinning risks.

In brief: Depends on dose

Under 3 grams a day is generally safe.
The american heart association recommends that if you take more than 3 grams a day of omega-3 fatty acids, you should do so under a doctor's care. High intake of fish oil supplements can cause bleeding in some people.
