I should have been clearer. If the entire bar is empty then a whole rest is needed. But I would never write [Quarter note followed by whole rest] or its opposite.

Yes. Also never use a whole rest. If the division is unclear I usually divide 3+2.

Isn't the convention to use a whole rest no matter the meter, at least up to something like 4/1 time? My feeling is that I would never NOT use a whole rest in 5/4.
