Hi, question on puzzle 1.

What if after 1. Kg4, I do Kd4 then go back to Kc4, will there still be a mate in 4?

Correct me if I'm wrong but perhaps the second puzzle can be simplified into mate in three with these lines:
1. Rb6 h6
2. Rxh6 (...f4 or Kd5)
3. Rxb5++

now if 1. ...f4 or ...Kd5
2. Rb4xb5 ++
