When to use electronic front curtain shutter?

I read this article: https://photographylife.com/what-is-electronic-front-curtain-shutter which was helpful.

The X-H1 manual says that when using EFCS, faster shutter speeds may result in "uneven exposure and loss of resolution in out-of-focus areas of the frame".

So at what shutter speeds is EFCS advisable?

If I choose EF + Mechanical, at what speed does the camera choose mechanical?

Any downside to leaving EF + Mechanical on all the time?

Thanks for any advice.
