Two Steal Att’s, C-bet Called, Turn SD+FD Draws

Trying to tweak my turn play a little bit and look to be aggressive in more spots and it has got me thinking more about situations like these.

Hand 1
Villain is unknown to me at this point. He called my flop bet on a dry board, I’m happy just to take the free river card here? Paired on the river, but can’t really see what I beat here given there are no busted draws.

Hand 2
Villain is unknown to me at this point. Firstly, if he had c/r’d flop, what is your play call or shove? Is this a standard check behind here? If I bet like $30 and he shoves I’ll just about have to call given I have about 30% equity vs two pair+ range right?
