According to Hanafi Fiqh, raf?-e-yadain is not sunnah except when starting salah. As far as raf?-e-yadain from the Prophet (صلی اللہ علیہ وسلم) is concerned, it was in the beginning of Islam.

(2) Allama Shami has mentioned 26 differences between the salah of a man and a woman. You should refer to it.
