Correct time/date of the Checkpoint servers.

I would like to verify in regards with the NTP Server, is it normal that some logs are being received in advance?

I also want to verify once I configure the "set time and date automatically using NTP", is it safe to change this during production or downtime should be expected?

You can define the ntp Servers  any time without any downtime.

For further reference look at the following SKs:

NTP will "skew" the clock toward the correct time.
However if the delta between system time and what NTP says is substantial (forget the exact threshold, but I think it's over 10 minutes), NTP will not touch the system clock st all.
Before you enable NTP, head to expert mode and use the ntpdate command to do a one-time sync with your favorite NTP server.
Then enable NTP and life should be good.
