There is no "stop" and the 3 hours + 1 hour is more of a guideline. You get 4 hours for the entire exam and can spilt that up however you'd like. I know some people who have even started on the extensions first -- so you can pick any order and split up the time however you'd like.

There are 60 core points + 20 extension points = 80 total points, so if you split up the 4 hours based on points, you get 3 hour core + 1 hour extension. But that's just a guideline and not a strict rule. You can do 2h55m core + 1h5m extension, and that's perfectly acceptable, nobody is watching how you split your time and you get 4 hours total.
