Default Prius 2007 - vibrations on idle gas engine rpms

Hello PriusOnline community!
I've just purchased my 1st Prius (used one, it's Prius from 2007) and hope to enjoy it!

I have 2 questions (and I did use Search before asking, however many threads talk about vibrations when in motion, I couldn't figure out anything related to my case):

1. I noticed vibrations on idle gas engine rpms when the engine is warm. I don't feel them when the engine is cold. I believe (though cannot check it) rpms are higher then and these vibrations are hardly noticed. I also haven't noticed anything strange when accelerating and driving on different speeds. However after 2-3 kilometers when I stop and ex. wait for a green light and gas engine is running - I feel the vibrations. The car is shaking a bit (back and forth, something like that). Is it normal behavior of Prius?

2. I need to change oil in a gas engine. How much do I need to buy - 3, 4 litres?

Thanks in advance for your feedback.
With kind regards,
