Default PLEASE HELP - OIL / IGNITION PROBLEMS

Hi, I have a 94 Accord, 4 door, V-tec engine. I recently bought this car and it's having several problems

If anyone could help me I would greatly appreciate it.

I don't think that its burning oil, because I can't smell anything and I don't see any fumes coming out of the exhaust however it loses oil randomly. I changed my oil last month at my mechanics. He recommended 5w30 I believe. Within 2 weeks, the oil went down below the two dots. I refilled it, it went a little bit over the two dots, after that, a week later, it went below the two dots again. I got an oil change, went on the highway, drove 140 Kilometers, come back, see that the oil is below the two dots again. Fill it up again, goes a little bit above the two dots, two days later, it's right in the middle of the two dots

Also, every once in a while, I turn my car on, the idle dwindles, it goes up and falls instantly and I have to wait a minute before it starts up again, almost as if something is not engaging...

Can someone please help me? Also what type of oil is my Honda supposed to take 10w30 or 5w30? My mechanic says 5w30 but I'm pretty sure its supposed to take 10w30.
