Help with American Frosting. Never used it before.

Am planning on using American frosting on a rainbow cake I'm making so I can get a nice bright white finish. From what I've read, i.e. a quick google, I need to work fast to get the cake covered as the icing sets quickly. So, two questions:

How quickly? How long do I have before its unworkable?

Do I need to crumb coat first with buttercream?

TIA
