Every surgeon has different post op instructions and requirements thus in your case, you need to ask your surgeon what he prefers. 

I recommend you to discuss specific issues regarding your questions with your dermatologist.

This really depends on the type of reconstruction and state of wound healing and can vary from person to person. It is best to consult the surgeon who performed this treatment on you.

Mohs' surgery is a method of tumor removal and microscopic evaluation to treat a skin cancer. This results in a defect (hole in the skin).  After Mohs', the wound may be left to heal on its own or may be repaired (Plastic Surgery). Any travel restrictions would be related to the repair in most cases. Speak with your surgeon to find out his/her recommendations.
