Kyoto and Osaka are both very close, you could stay at either of these cities and make day trips to the other. Its mostly a personal preference, if you like the business atmosphere of Osaka or more traditional atmosphere of Kyoto.
The JR Pass is valid for a period of consecutive days and the first day is counted as a full day, no matter what time of day you start using it.
