In brief: Everyone is differen
Everyone digests food at their own rate.
In general, i would suggest waiting an hour before running. Weight lifting could be done sooner, as the stomach is not being subjected to all the jostling.

In brief: Depends
Eating diverts blood to the GI tract and may reduce the supply of blood to other organs.
Increasingly it is recognized that an available source of calories is critical to high performance. For example, in professional cycling, riders eat throughout the race to assure a steady supply of sugar. In summary, it is very individualized. If you get a stomach ache after eating, try smaller easily digestib.
