I don't think there should be any boiling going on after the (whipped) cream is added.

oops.

I didn't quite get what you were asking.

If you are referring to the actual custard component... I bring to a boil and then shut it down to a simmer.

It is done when the mixture coats the back of a spoon.

Times will be different for just about everyone depending on elevation, ambient humidity, type pan used and so forth and so on.

Re temp?

IDK sorry.

I would make the caramel and then let it cool sufficiently to be added to the anglais and the whipped cream; in my experience I don't let it cook after adding the warmed cream.  I like a very dark caramel otherwise to my taste it gets diluted after you add the anglais and whipped cream...
