You want wall mud (fat mud) for the curb. The shower floor needs deck mud. I mix my own fat mud all the time. 4 sand to 1 Portland and about 3/4 lime usually makes a good mix.

The floor can be done before the walls or after. I do the walls first.

You'll want to cut the floor tiles down to 3x3 or 4x4's. Large tiles don't work well on shower floors.

I wouldn't butt joints anywhere. You want 1/32 to 1/16 for grout. You can miter the tiles or leave them square and polish the edges. Or, you can bullnose and polish the edges. Polishing the square edge is easiest in my opinion.
