1. cap gap automatically extends your opt to 9.30
2.There is no problem with that, once you asked the school to issue you a stem opt i20, it will show "stem opt recommendation requested" on it, but this recommendation expires within 60 or 90 days(I cannot remember the exact number..), if you did not email out your application before that time, you need to ask the school to issue you another one.
