Question 1 Observership for 3 months or 3 Observerships for 1 month each?

does observering in a single reputed hospital better for longer period eg:3-4 months or doing observership at 3-4 different hospitals better in that time period.

I am talking both in terms of securing an LOR and leaving a good impression.

As i know you should have atleast 3 LOR to apply to residency programs, am i correct?

The more LoR you get the better your chances in matching which means that doing three different hospitals is better than doing one.
