What are the business objectives of design?

Based on the diagram

1) I would keep the router to router connection for redundancy.

2) I would make the connection between the router and the switch L3, that way you can control the routing. Assign the route to the switch priority over the WAN connection to the other router

3) Not to sure about this, I would increment the users little bit at a time and now put everyone on at once if possible and monitor your processes to make sure they can handle it
