    I can count on one hand the number of times I have said "whom" in conversation.

    Your other question is correct, in case you were worried.

    Whom does it take 3 hours to get back home from work?
    "Whom" is absolutely correct for writing. When talking, chaika has a point, it is rarely used (although correct!), but then, when talking, you would just say, "Who does it take 3 hours to get home?" Talking, I wouldn't bother to repeat the whole thing.
    Correct my Russian, please! Пожалуйста, исправьте мои ошибки!

    - What have we spent $2k on?

    - Whom does it take three hours?

    пожалуйста...


    'Whom' is primarily used in contemporary conversation in answering questions inquiring 'by/with'.

    ex. I was with him

    With Whom?
