P1000 feature confirmation

Hi. I went through P1000 reference manual for these features. I did not find anything on the first feature below.

I am interested in this camera for slow-moving wildlife (not BIF). I understand that the zoom can be slow to go from wide end to the long end. I would like to have fixed/preset focal lengths for zooming. I would like the stops to be 200mm, 500mm and multiples of 500 up to 3000mm. When I nudge the zoom lever, I want the zoom to go to the next stop quickly. There is such a feature with my FZ2500 (different focal lengths) but couldn't find it in the P1000 manual.

I found a section on this next feature but it wasn't clear to me. May be, I was looking in the wrong place.

When I turn the camera off and on again, I want to zoom to start at 200mm or around 500mm.

Please clarify if these two features exist.

Edit: Third... If going around a bird sanctuary or wild life reserve with the camera turned on, how many hours does the battery last?
