I'd advise working your way to high rank in the village first. That should give you a decent amount of experience handling each of the monsters. Though you can go online any time you want. Just try to avoid karting too much and definitely avoid doing things that trip up other players.

I'm kinda new to monster hunter and don't wanna get in way over my head. As of right now...I'm in Moga village doing 2 star quests...
There is nothing special about the online quests apart from the monsters being stronger. If you can find a party of HR1 companions go ahead and start questing. It is much more fun online and the quests don't take as long.
Whenever you want. It's not like you start off at some higher rank online. You will start at HR1 and play with all the other HR1 players. It's actually better because you can learn off each other instead of being blind and getting use to bad habits. I went online after 1 star quests and did fine.
I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.
You can start pretty early, just go to the "beginner" rooms to learn the ropes. You will want to get a decent feel for your character before even doing that though. At least to the point that you are not carting during the quests.
