Question: Vietnam visa questions

Hello, (sorry for my poor English) I am a Czech citizen (tourist). As I am not completely sure yet if I will be able to leave for Vietnam – this kind of visa seems suitable for me as I will be able to apply just before planed departure. My questions are flowing:
1. I understand that the total cost of my 3 months visa with multiple entry is $95 (stamping fee) + 45 (service fee) = $140 (altogether). Am I right? ….any other fees?
2. When and which way am I to pay the service fee? (Stamping fee I pay on arrival – I suppose…?)
3. According to my flying ticket I am to get to Vietnam on Jan. 21th and leave for home on Feb. 25th. Do I really need 3 months visa? Isn’t there some small toleration (4 days)? I mean – wouldn’t be 1 month visa enough?
4. If I am leaving Prague for Vietnam on Jan 20th, what is the latest moment to apply for visa on arrival? (I prefer to be sure I will be successful…)
5. I apologize to ask… Is this way to get visa completely safe? Will I obtain your approval letter in time? Will it be for sure accepted when boarding the plane and when arriving in HCMC (Tan Son Nhat) by immigration office?
Thank you in advance for your kind and prompt answers.
