Q3. If a public holiday falls on a weekend, then will the coming Monday be a holiday?

No. If a public holiday falls on a weekend, then the coming Monday will not be a holiday as there is no such law or provision of compensating a holiday if it falls on a weekend by giving it off on a weekend. 

If the management of the organisation wants to give an off on Monday in such a case then it’s a different scenario and is generally not seen anywhere.
