Hello Rohit r krishnan..

Usage of AC does have effect on mileage as some of the power is used to run compressor.The effect can be easily experienced in small engine cars like Maruti 800AC. In higher cc engines also it has effect on mileage but drop in power is not that easily noticable. However the variation of mileage with respect to speed variation of the AC is negligible. Hence you can use AC in speed setting as you feel comfortable with.

Yes, you can do that just make sure that if the weather is too hot and you are driving slow then roll down the windows and use the AC at highway speeds. You can also set the temperature lower than what you need. In the start of your drive, open the widows, let the hot air flow out and then close the windows and start the ac. It will help you in fuel economy; you can also refer to the manual of your car and see which is the best way to use the AC. It might help you with your mileage.Yes, you can do that just make sure that if the weather is too hot and you are driving slow then roll down the windows and use the AC at highway speeds.
