    She won't be doing

    She won't be doing her homework, until after dinner.

    She won't be doing her homework after dinner.

    Are these sentences convey the same meaning?

    No, they are opposites. In the first, she will be doing her homework after dinner; in the second, she won't.

    No. That would mean she is doing it while she is eating.
