The green card is taking a bit longer than the SS card, you should get it soon. Have you been tracking production online? You will find this thread useful http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/439537-green-card-production-after-elis/page-83

The GC can take from 1 to 3 months to arrive by mail. In the interim, your immigrant visa with the stamp is your temporary GC for one year, for all intents and purposes as an actual GC.

Yes of course you can, however the expiration date on the visa is not how long the visa is valid as a temporary GC. The expiration date on the visa is irrelevant once you do POE.

Once you enter the US, the visa will be valid for one year from the day you did POE, as a temporary GC.Therefore, if you entered the US on September 24, 2014, it would expire on September 23, 2015, NOT in December.

Yes, and once you have your SSN you can also use the immigrant visa to get your state ID or driver's license as well, plus whatever other proof the FL DMV requires. Although, you don't need a state id to begin working.
