Certificate how early to request LOR

How early to request LOR, say give 2 wks for physician to write, to make sure we can submit the documents on Sept 15. Early August?

If somehow one author on the LOR list is not able to write the LOR eventually, is it a problem? I mean the actual numbers of letter are fewer than listed, but enough for me to upload, will I have trouble.

Thanks
