When playing the boxes across the neck in the same key, should you always start and end on the root notes?

if that's the way you want to practice but not every box has a root on the low E so.......

i would recommend playing the full shape not nessecarily root to rooot

if you where playng a solo you wouldn't just constantly play root to root.

if your playing infront of a examintation board you would, but i doubt you are, if you are just soloing, improvising or something it doesnt matter do what you want.

And i would advice you not to just play box positions but branch out, becuase if you learning scales now and you can branch out early it will save you so much time in the future.

No.

You should know where they are though. And you should spend time practicing it that way so that you do know where they are, and can hear those notes as the root.

if your making music though..... use your ears.... end on the note that sounds right for the moment. That may or may not be the root. It just depends on the situation, and your own personal judgement.
shred is gaudy music
