enhanced inc. backup need consolidation?


I'd like to ask some help, because some thing not clear for me!

I run enhanced inc backup on all server (linux-win-hpux....). Our protecion on backups is 35 day.

Should i run consolidation every month or week? ...or it is just for simple incremental backup.

What happened if the first enhanced inc. (which is full) is run out of protection?

Could i restore file after 40 day....
