I have assembled a video. I now want to do voice narration on top of it. Can I do it in sections? In other words, can I start it, do some, save it, and then on another day, go back to that voice file and continue?   Thanks an awful lot in advance.

Yes. You can do that. The only warning is that you do the best you can to maintain the same audio levels and tone from session to session. That can be long and tedious to correct afterward.

Yes and no. You can come back to the project and add more voice narration. But you can't come back to the same voice narration file.

Think of it this way: you can Every time you use the voice narration tool, you click "Stop Recording" to save your voice over audio file. You can have as many of those that you want in your project. But when you click "stop recording" that's all the content particular file will have.

And yes, like the great and powerful Oz du Soleil said, make sure you keep track of your settings and try to replicate them and your environment. Consider recording 30 seconds of just silence. That way you can overlay that in future recordings to match ambient noise.
