Default Background check before starting Residency

Hello all,
i matched into an IM program in Ohio and recently i filled the application for State Licensure in which I had to fill in each and every month after my MEDICAL SCHOOL and my work experience. My question is--
1- Do I need to contact my Medical school again for something if Ohio or my Residency program seeks more information? I am asking because I went to Russian Medical school and I had hard time explaining them the need and process of sending credentials and MSPE before applying for USMLE or ERAS application.
2- According to myself I have put everything correctly about my work experience but as they want account for each month even if it was a vacation, how badly does it matter as I might not remember which exact month I didn't go to work. FYI, I worked in India.

some specific Info will be highly appreciated as I don;t want anything to jeopardize the Residency start.
