1 should i picture frame the floor before installing all the wood?
2 should i (if i picture frame the floor) Cut the corners at 45deg and make all of em match?
Any words of advise is welcome.
Thanks in advance..

Real wood you can do most any layout and make it look good, just takes more time and money to do so. If you have the tools, time and moolah, mitered corners would look better to me then butt joints.

There are no baseboards, there is slate that this will be going around and beside cork.

Let me make sure I understand you correctly. You're looking to run maple flooring around a slate inset, and around the outside of your hardwood maple flooring, you have cork flooring? How big of an area are we talking about here? Will this be placed in a foyer, living room, dining room or kitchen? How wide of a band are looking to achieve with the hardwood, in other words, how much void is there between the slate flooring and the cork flooring? Just trying to get a feel as to how much hardwood you're looking to install.
If the hardwood is going to be around an existing slate floor, then I'd recommend going with the picture frame idea around the perimeter, and yes, mitering the corners so they match. You could step the joints, by overlapping the joints, differently each row, but I think the mitered corners would look much better.
Anyway of posting us a picture of your area?
