In brief: Wait a few days

The mouth heals pretty quickly so i think about three days should do it.
You want to give your mouth the best chance to heal by avooding foods and drink that are hot, spicy or acidic for a while.

In brief: Almost immediately

Everyone is different.
For most people, hot and or spicy food makes no difference.

In brief: 24 hours

Any sooner than 24 hours would risk prolonging the healing.
