In these cases, you'll want to have two working directories, if only to

git checkout documentation
# fix a typo
git commit
git checkout code
# complete rebuild triggered.

Not necessarily. I don't see an option in "git init" to change the
default branch name, but you can

git init foo
cd foo
git checkout -b whatever-branch-name

and work.

Otherwise, you can have a branch that is locally called "master", and
push it as another name (but that is probably the "error prone" in your
message ;-) ).
