20 mins from the end of the boil is usually the norm

Dissolve and add to FV? That way you have 0% of any being left behind in the boiler :)

Yeah I would think sticking to elements is something to be careful about, pour it in slowly away from the element.

Take some wort from the boil and add to the invert (solid or syrup) in a separate pan, bring to the boil and add to the copper. I always add sugar half way through the boil.

+1 Albeit slightly different, I take some wort with 20 minutes left on the boil, dissolve the sugar and chuck it back in for the 15 minute, it doesn't matter about knocking the boil off as my wort chiller does that anyway, a few minutes and it's boiling again. No issues with having it sticking to the element, just chuck it in.
