    Yes, it's incorrect. Only one question mark is required, it should follow immediately after the last word in the sentence and there should be a full stop at the end. Whether or not "none" should be capitalised is debatable.

    No.

    I didn't go to any of the/Dr Edge's/her/etc lectures.
    I didn't go to any lectures.

    We use 'any of'' only with determiners and possessives.
    In future, please start a new thread for different questions. It can be confusing if two or more questions are being dealt with in one thread.
