If you leave a small gap the carpet fitter can push the carpet down into the gap and it can make a neater finish. However if you have any draughts blowing through the gap they are better fitted tighter to the floor. If in any doubt fit them tight, I always do.

Skirting board

Hopefully I'll be refitting the skirting boards in the spare room this evening.  When I took them off, 2 were tight down against the floor boards and the other 2 had a 1/4" gap under them.  

Which should I go for?  If it makes a difference, the floor is going to be carpeted
