There's no need for the mud to go back in the wall between the studs. Nail or screw 2x10 or 2x12 blocks between the studs so that they are flush with the outside edge of the studs. Sometimes we have to notch the back side of the block if they hit the pipes.

I haven't used the Wedi base but I wouldn't mud the floor until I had the base on the job. A 3x3 shower is small, you will need some sort of door or curtain to keep the water contained inside the shower.
