Default Keep doing questions

It's recommended that you keep doing questions until the day of the exam. Practicing is very important to maintain your endurance and test taking mood. It's just like the professional sport players who keep training until the day of the contest.
Having a one month gap is not a good idea. I suggest you rearrange your plan in a way so that you practice questions are continued until your exam day.

Some experts even recommend doing simulated exams (7 blocks in one day) during the week before the examination.

PS- you seem to be a USMLE Consult winner this month as evident by your current high ranking.
