Back To Practice Piano Advice: How Fast To Play And Practice Plan

I have been on and off my piano practicing and am trying to stick with a system to practice well.

I wanted to ask 3 questions. First, how fast do we need to be when practicing scales? Second, would this practice plan of mine be well enough to better my skills?:

10-15 min warm up with scales 30 min practice with chords and songs (done from a music app).
